With Boston at a 17% recycling rate, ever wondered how San Francisco 
manages to divert 75% of their discards to reuse, recycling, and 
composting? 

Clean Water Action invites YOU to a Zero Waste planning event for 
residents, activists and advocates. It costs zero dollars to attend, and 
you will waste no time whatsoever!

Join us on Monday, October 1, 2012 from 1:00-3:30 p.m. at the Community 
Church of Boston (565 Boylston St., near Copley Sq.) Clean Water Action 
will host a Zero Waste event for residents and others interested in 
reducing the amount of waste going to transfer 
stations, landfills, and incinerators. Download a flyer here:

from California; Lynne Pledger from Clean Water Action, Massachusetts; a
