Edible Food Recovery Capacity Report: 2024

Zero Waste Marin worked with HF&H Consultants in 2024 to complete an Edible Food Recovery Capacity Report. This report provides an overview of the edible food recovery landscape in Marin County, and estimates available capacity for recovery of surplus edible food. This report was completed due to a requirement from State agency CalRecycle and to comply with State law SB 1383. 

ZWM Annual Report: 22/23 Fiscal Year

Zero Waste Marin published an Annual Report in October 2023 to summarize the programs and activities completed in 2022/23 Fiscal Year. The Report outlines accomplishments from the Fiscal Year and sets goals for the 2023/24 Fiscal Year. 

Zero Waste Feasibility Study 2021

The amount of solid waste disposed in landfills has increased in recent years at statewide and local levels. Due to this increase in disposal and the changes in recycling markets, Zero Waste Marin hired R3 Consulting Group to provide an update to the Zero Waste Feasibility Study. This study was designed to guide the next steps and provides a roadmap for Zero Waste Marin.

Organizational Assessment Report 2018

Alongside the Zero Waste Feasibility study an Organizational Assessment was also performed by R3 Consulting Group, which provides insight into the governance, staffing, and coordination of the agency with its 11 incorporated cities and the County.

Material Flow and Capacity Analysis 2018

In 2018, Zero Waste Marin conducted a “Material Flow and Capacity Analysis” to better understand long term needs for access to both disposal access (landfilling) and organics processing (composting facilities or other organics processing operations).

The Study includes a narrative report and two “one page” infographics – one summarizing landfilling needs for Marin County and one summarizing organics processing needs for Marin County.
