CITY OF SAN JOSE WORKS TOWARD ZERO WASTE
The city of San Jose wants resident input to plan for a zero waste future. City officials want to make San Jose one of the first major cities to rethink energy, water and land use by engaging everyone, from residents, to businesses and government agencies. It's called the Zero Waste Elemental draft. A major goal of the city is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that warm the planet by 244,000 tons of carbon dioxide by the year 2030 -- that's equivalent to more than 52,000 gas powered cars on the road in one year.
