The internationally peer-reviewed definition of Zero Waste is:
‘The conservation of all resources by means of responsible production, consumption, reuse, and recovery of products, packaging, and materials without burning and with no discharges to land, water, or air that threaten the environment or human health.’

Portions of this video include references to incineration and burning processes that are not endorsed by Zero Waste USA or COOLNow. The main focuses for this video are compost facility growth and funding opportunities available to redirect compostable organics out of landfills. As stated toward the end of the video, we endorse product stewardship and design so that incineration, pyrolysis and burning methods become obsolete.
