Zero Waste & Architecture

Presenter: Lower East Side Ecology Center, NYC

Overview: Familiarize yourself with the City of New York’s goal of sending zero waste to landfills by 2030 and learn how design can play a major role in achieving and sustaining zero waste. 

Lower East Side Ecology Center was founded in 1987 as one of the first organizations to offer community-based recycling and composting programs in New York City. They started their programs by providing innovative recycling drop-off centers. Today, the Ecology Center offers free public compost collection and education, electronic waste recycling, stewardship of public open space, and environmental education. Their programs focus on offering opportunities for all New Yorkers to learn about environmental issues facing NYC and to take responsibility for solving those problems.

This lecture is accredited for 2 LU/HSW credits through the American Institute of Architects.
