Eco-Wave Team
Some Greening Greater Racine members have teamed up with community leadership to form a Zero Waste Committee. This team, comprised of 27 members, is working on strategies and action plans to reduce waste throughout Racine to alleviate the soon-to-be full Kestral Hawk Landfill. This team is now under the management of the Visioning a Greater Racine Eco-Wave Team. If you’d like to join this team, please email us at [email protected]

Zero Waste Committee

​​The Zero Waste Committee of Greater Racine has been active for over a year working to bring collective action on this movement that is popular in many American cities. The Zero Waste committee is a clearing house for what is happening around the issues of recycling and waste in greater Racine. We support these current initiatives and provide networking opportunities for those working on them. And we brainstorm in seeking to initiate new efforts. We encourage community members to join us with their ideas and actions. The Zero Waste committee is facilitated by Greening Greater Racine and the Eco-WAVE Team of Visioning a Greater Racine.
