The city of Atlanta has announced its commitment to participation in Atlanta’s Zero Waste Zones, the eco-friendly concern that is increasing awareness among business owners on diverting landfill assets back into the production cycle to protect the environment.

“The city’s support of Zero Waste Zones illustrates our commitment to moving Atlanta toward becoming a top 10 city for sustainability,” said Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.

“One critical step in this process is to develop a viable zero-waste plan that will create green jobs and reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of discarded materials,” Reed said. “ZWZ complements our zero-waste plan and vision and is the economically and ecologically right thing to do for the city.”
