Achieving Zero Waste requires pre-planning and buy-in from the top. Identify all of the items for reuse and diversion prior to the start of production and that all departments are on board and prepared from the beginning.

Recycling and reusing materials save productions money and benefit communities. On top of this, some haulers offer Zero Waste certification. Make sure to share your experiences as part of a case study or story and market your Zero Waste Production as such!
