Where does your garbage go? What is zero waste?

May 3 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

We all breathe what the Wheelabrator incinerator burns, especially the frontline Environmental Justice community of Peekskill, which is disproportionately impacted. Join us in the countywide discussion to address urgent questions and solutions to achieve environmental justice for Peekskill and cleaner air for everyone: Where does your garbage go? What are the environmental, health and climate impacts of burning trash? What does zero waste mean? What is Environmental Justice? What are the solution steps?
