Austin American Statesman gets Zero Waste Argument Completely Wrong

On December 21st, the Austin American Statesman published a front-page article claiming that zero waste makes poor economic sense and that we “don’t know the final resting place of some of the items that Austinites put in their blue bins.”

I love and hate poor reporting like this: hate because despite their dropping readership, more people in Austin see this trash (pun intended) than see all the smart rebuttals; and love because of all the great rebuttals from friends and colleagues around the City.

Read my quick thoughts below, then visit Texas Campaign for the Environment’s page to take some action.
