Sonoma County Zero Waste Symposium engages community stakeholders by showcasing zero waste policies, programs and infrastructure that design waste out of the system wherever possible and divert discarded materials through composting, reclaiming, reducing, reusing, and recycling.  We can eliminate waste in Sonoma County with the participation of all residents and businesses.  Together, it is possible to be a model for the rest of the community and beyond.
