Now through the month of October, the City of Boise is challenging all Boise businesses to take on waste reduction throughout their operations.
The challenge is part of the city’s broader effort to reduce Boise’s overall waste footprint, increase the reuse of materials and bolster its sustainability as the city continues to grow. The Business Waste Reduction Challenge builds on the recent success of the Boise Plastics Challenge. In July, nearly 1,000 individual residents signed up to eliminate certain plastics throughout the month.
Mayor Dave Bieter announced the challenge yesterday during his annual State of the City address.
