Sharing the Zero Waste Toolkit

The Zero Waste Toolkit (SFRecycles and Signmaker) helps businesses and residents make recycling signs and find out what goes in which bin. SF Environment shares parts of the Zero Waste Toolkit with cities and countries working towards zero waste. If you work for a city or county, contact SF Environment about sharing web tools.


Reuse in Action

See customized versions of Signmaker or SF Recycles in cities, counties, and countries around the world.
