ZERO by FIFTY Actions


The recommended actions in ZERO by FIFTY: Missoula’s Pathway to Zero Waste plan are organized into four connected focus areas or “paths.” These four paths represent the priorities identified by Missoulians at the ZERO by FIFTY community listening sessions, and they align with best practices identified through research of model Zero Waste communities.

The vision for each path is described briefly and accompanied by identified objectives.

Click on each path below to explore the recommended actions. The actions represent best practices implemented by communities across the United States. Many of these actions are used by model Zero Waste communities in our region. The majority of the recommended actions and accompanying descriptions in this plan come from the EPA’s Managing and Transforming Waste Streams: A Tool for Communities.
