JUNE
A2Zero Week Featured Events

Join Give365 of Ann Arbor Parks to assist with an audit of our Zero-Waste Stations during A2Zero Week. We will be cataloging and photographing the contents of trash, recycling, and compost bins, then re-sorting the waste into the appropriate containers as part of our partnership with Waste Knots. This feedback and careful analysis will help us to assess our current signage and the quality of our sorting instructions! If there is enough time we will also be collecting litter from around the park. Contact GIVE 365 at [email protected] or 734.794.6445 to sign up and learn more!
