2013 - third year was a charm

2013 Program
Total Upcycled & Recycled: 7 tons

ZeroLandfill Pittsburgh has engaged over 450 people as donors, recipients or volunteers and logged over 400 volunteer hours.
This year, there were 45 donor sign-ins and at more than 65 educators received free materials for their classrooms. 
In our first three years we have supplied three summer camps with free binders and hundreds of people took home great materials for their art, education, or home improvement projects. 

Joy, Erika, Emma, David, Dan and the Bee Dance group wanted to thank everyone that contributed, volunteered their time, and collected material for Zerolandfill.
