In the design and construction industry, we find ourselves creating a lot of waste from expired or unused materials collected in our finish libraries that inevitably make their way to the landfill.
So ZeroLandfill asked why not repurpose, or upcycle, these materials back into the community? Once unwanted materials can have a new life as free-source materials for educators and non-profit associations, or be transformed into works of art by artists and crafters.
ZeroLandfill is a program of BeeDance. For a fifth year, IIDA Georgia (International Interior Design Association of Georgia) has partnered with Wilsonart to bring the ZeroLandfill event to Atlanta. To date, the organizations have helped upcycle more than 156,000 pounds of discontinued architectural and interior design samples. Help IIDA Georgia beat their previous year totals by participating in the 2017 ZeroLandfill Atlanta event!
Picking up Materials? ZeroLandfill welcomes all educators, crafters, hobbyist, artist, students and the general public to join them on Saturday, August 5 and August 12 at their new event venue Certified Finishes from 8:00 AM until 12:00 PM. Register under “Material Pick Up” Please share the word!
Volunteering? ZeroLandfill need lots of volunteers to help both Fridays, August 4 and 11 and Saturdays, August 5 and 12. Register under "Volunteer" and they will send additional information to you via e-mail. For those in the design industry, each volunteer hour can be self-reported as one USGBC CE hour to help you maintain your LEED GA or AP credential.
