City to Host Waste Reduction Workshops
The City will host Waste Reduction Workshops in October and November to educate residents on the waste reduction policies outlined in the City's Climate Action and Resilience Plan (CARP) and to gather feedback.
In December 2018, the City adopted CARP, a comprehensive plan to reduce Evanston’s impact on global climate change while preparing the community for its effects. The plan outlines policies and actions the City can take to reach its goal of "Zero Waste by 2050."
All Waste Reduction Workshops are co-hosted by the City of Evanston, Citizens’ Greener Evanston and D65 Green Teams, and are free and open to the public.
- Wednesday, October 23, 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Fleetwood-Jourdain Community Center, 1655 Foster St.
- Thursday, November 7, 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the J.E.H. Education Center, 1500 McDaniel Ave.
In order to gather additional community input, the City will present its waste reduction policies and solicit feedback at multiple ward meetings and the following community events:
Residents who cannot attend a workshop, meeting or event are invited to provide feedback on CARP policies by filling out the CARP Zero Waste Policies Feedback Form.
To learn more about CARP, residents are encouraged to attend an Environment Board meeting, held on the second Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Morton Civic Center, 2100 Ridge Ave.
