Zero Waste Co helps transform any event into a socially and environmentally responsible celebration. We help our clients reduce the negative environmental impact of any event by customizing a recycling, composting, reuse and donation program to meet each clients specific needs. 

As an Official Endorser of the US United States Enviromental Protection Agency Food Recovery Challenge we are dedicated to delivering excess catered food to people in need. We specilize in developing a compostable materials composting program, and since 2015 have donated* 600 lbs. of unserved, delicious food to local organizations and diverted 8,000 lbs. of organic material from the landfill.

*Donated food is handled under the guidelines of the Federal Good Samaritan Act and is tracked as part of the United States Environmental Protection Agency Food Recovery Challenge.

On average, we help our clients divert about 85 - 90% of their waste from the landfill.
