During her 2015 State of the City address, Mayor Hodges launched the start of a yearlong process to create a set of strategies to move Minneapolis toward zero-waste. The process will be led by a policy workgroup of the Mayor and City Council Members Kevin Reich, Cam Gordon, Linea Palmisano, and Alondra Cano, who together have identified project outcomes, the planning process, and scope. In addition to leadership from the policy workgroup, staff from the Mayor’s office, City Council, Solid Waste & Recycling, and Sustainability will be convening a staff-level technical work group to provide information, analysis, and recommendations to the policy work group.
Members of the community can share their ideas for moving the city toward a zero-waste future by contacting the Mayor and Council Members. You can also join the conversation on social media using #zerowastempls. Updates and information about the planning process will be posted here.
