Zero Waste Resolution Update
On September 27, Longmont City Council passed an updated Zero Waste Resolution, a non-binding document that sets new targets and guides future decision-makers on reducing waste in the Longmont Community. The new Resolution sets a new target of 75% of trash diverted from the landfill by 2030 and 95% by 2050. Read a one-page summary of the Resolution or the full Zero Waste Resolution.
City staff plan to bring a draft Universal Recycling Ordinance to City Council in December for discussion and further direction. This Ordinance may require recycling in all buildings, including commercial and multifamily, and organics diversion for food permitted businesses.
