The City is embarking on a strategic plan for waste reduction and recycling and welcomes imaginative input from all members of the community.

On Tuesday, June 11, and Wednesday, June 12, 2013, the City of Fort Collins will host the start of a series of four community discussions to solicit input from residents, members of the business community, non-profits, and service providers on a strategic plan for waste reduction and recycling.

Members of the public, businesses, and service providers are welcome to attend one or all of the discussions. Each event will include an overview of the current state of waste and recycling in Fort Collins, a presentation about the cutting-edge ideas and strategies that other communities are implementing on their path to zero waste, and ample time for community input, discussion, and brainstorming.
