The Zero Waste Design Guidelines address the crucial role that design plays in achieving NYC’s ambitious goal, outlined in OneNYC, to send zero waste to landfills by 2030. As a resource to help designers, building operators, and planners, the Guidelines outline the collaboration needed to dramatically reduce waste and work toward greater adoption of circular material flows. Treating waste as a resource rather than trash depends on our ability to easily separate and manage our waste. Applying design strategies to our current system of linear material use will improve sidewalks and buildings as it lessens environmental and social impacts in the city and beyond.
The presentation will give an overview of the design strategies within the guidelines and show how the waste calculator can be used to estimate the quantities of different waste streams a building will generate.
