Garbage Collection

Garbage, trash, rubbish... pick your term.  Now imagine reducing what we throw there, even further than we already have. 

That's the challenge the City of Eureka is placing before its citizens: the idea that NOTHING is wasted and ends up in a landfill.  Go Zero Eureka is a campaign to push for a zero-waste community.

Present-day residents of Ashland, Ore., are accustomed to weekly garbage collection.  There was a time when it was an annual event.
