Submitted by on 1, August 25, 2010 – 4:45 amNo Comment

The City of Alameda and Community Action for a Sustainable Alameda are partnering to put on a Zero Waste workshop from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. today at the Alameda Free Library, 1550 Oak Street. The event is free and open to the public.

The purpose of the meeting is to review findings of the city’s Zero Waste Implementation Plan, a 10-year plan that aims to increase the city’s trash diversion rate to 89 percent of all of its solid waste and reduce the city’s greenhouse gas emissions by more than 44,000 metric tons – or 25 percent below emissions released in 2005 – by 2020.

More information is available online or by calling Maria DiMeglio at 749-5840.

Meanwhile, the city’s Transportation Commission will hold a workshop starting at 7:30 p.m. today in Conference Room 360 of City Hall. That workshop will include a review of draft pedestrian guidelines and updates on a host of transportation programs around the city (full list here).

That meeting is free and open to the public.
