Recycling and Zero Waste
In 2006, Mountain View residents and businesses diverted 72 percent of materials from the landfill through the City's recycling, reuse and waste reduction program services. One of the items in the Environmental Sustainability Action Plan was creation of a Zero Waste Plan. As a result, a study to characterize Mountain View's remaining waste was conducted and a draft Zero Waste Plan was created. The draft vision provides that by 2025, all discarded materials are recovered for their highest and best use, and no materials are sent to landfills or incinerators. To achieve that vision, the goals call for an 80 percent diversion rate by 2015 and a 90 percent diversion rate by 2020.
