Do you know about zerolandfill?
Architects and Interior designers have expired specification samples.
Artists and art educators have material needs for artwork and classroom projects.
What is zerolandfill? It is a beneficial reuse program assisting the architectural and interior design community in identifying, diverting from landfills, and re-purposing back in the community thousands of pounds of specification samples that hold value for other audiences.
The Ohio Kentucky Chapter of IIDA is joining forces with zerolandfill in Columbus. IIDA members will be volunteering to help with the sample drop off and with community members looking to pick up materials. So do you have any outdated samples or supplies laying around your office that could be useful to others? Come see the IIDA peeps at the dates and location below.
The drop off days are Friday September 28 and October 5.
Community pick up days are Saturday September 29 and October 6.
The location has moved this year to:
371 Maier Place, Bay 15
Columbus, OH 43215
Columbus has participated for over two years now in the zerolandfill effort, recycling (or as zerolandfill refers to it, "upclycling") thousands of pounds of materials that would otherwise have gone to a landfill. What a great program as the materials are kept intact and re-used for another purpose. For more information on zerolandfill and their locations across the US go to www.zerolandfill.net.
