UPDATE: City Of Eureka Launches Zero Waste Community Baseline Survey

This update reflects the addition of a letter of support for the program from the Mayor of Eureka.

Help the City plan for Zero Waste and be entered in a drawing to win Zero Waste prizes!

Take the survey here.

The City wants you involved the upcoming Zero Waste Action planning process! Residents, non-residents that work here, and frequent visitors are invited to participate via the November 2019 baseline survey.

In a letter to the community, Mayor Susan Seaman says:

“The City’s Zero Waste Action Plan will be a call to action for Eureka citizens and businesses to reduce our community’s waste, currently amounting to six pounds per per person per day…I urge you to join the City of Eureka as we shift our approach to sustainable materials management and Zero Waste prevention strategies by refusing, reducing, reusing, and recycling… Innovative waste reduction initiatives will become a point of pride for Eureka. Individual and business actions can have a measurable impact and as a community, we can make a real difference.”

Designed to solicit input early in the development of the Zero Waste Action Plan, the survey will be launched at the next City Council meeting on Tuesday, November 5. A short multiple-choice on-line survey, it should take less than 10-minutes to complete. All respondents will be automatically entered into a free drawing to win zero waste prizes. Your input will provide needed information for goal setting and ideas for practical problem solving. The results will be available on the City website in mid-January. A second survey will be conducted once the draft Action Plan is ready for community review.

Join the City of Eureka as we shift our approach to sustainable materials management and Zero Waste prevention strategies by refusing, reducing, reusing, and recycling. Innovative waste reduction initiatives can become a point of pride for Eureka. Individual and business actions can have a measurable impact and as a community, we can make a real difference.
