Longmont staff to present draft of Zero Waste Resolution to City Council on June 28
City of Longmont staff will be presenting a draft of an update to the Zero Waste Resolution to the City Council for discussion and direction at 7 pm on Tuesday, June 28.
In 2021, the City achieved a 42% residential diversion rate, helping the City on its path to achieve its Sustainability Plan goals. The Zero Waste Resolution helps keep Longmont on its path to achieving goals for diverting waste from landfills, reducing litter, pollution and contamination of soil and water, as well as greenhouse gas emissions.
City Council directed staff to review and update the existing Zero Waste Resolution, which was approved in 2008, and bring forward for discussion. The discussion will include the City’s commitment to waste management practices that support zero waste, diversion from the landfill, and goals and metrics to evaluate its success.
The City thanks all those who provided input on social media, the Engage Longmont webpage, and community meetings, which helped City staff best understand community concerns and needs. Visit Engage Longmont to submit your ideas, feedback, and stay informed.
