Habitat shoots for zero waste construction at The Grove; learn how they did it

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – As Habitat works on Phase 3 of The Grove, one thing they’ve come to learn is how to better manage waste. We’ve all seen those enormous construction site dumpsters, right?

Habitat for Humanity set out to try a “Zero Waste Construction” pilot program when they began building at The Grove. They’ve had some challenges and made some discoveries along the way, and are eager to share what they’ve learned with the public.

Industry leaders, waste-haulers, and solid waste professionals will be on hand at the Teton County Library auditorium Thursday, November 2 from 11:30am-1pm to answer questions and share details on the zero waste construction project at The Grove.

The event is sponsored by Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, Integrated Solid Waste and Recycling Recycling, Habitat for Humanity, and Teton County.

The gathering includes free lunch along with a discussion on how to best manage construction and demolition waste.
