Eunomia was commissioned by the City of Hoboken, New Jersey to create their Zero Waste Plan, which evaluated current waste management practices, identified potential efficiencies, and seeks to increase diversion rates, decrease GHG emissions, and ultimately reduce costs for the City.

Through waste audits, we discovered that over 21,936 tons of recyclable material was still present in the waste stream and that organics, particularly food scraps, constituted approximately 45 percent of the overall waste collected.

To address this issue and increase efficiencies, the Zero Waste Plan includes 18 action items broken into short-term and long-term goals. These initiatives range from expanding educational outreach to establishing waste requirements for future large building developments, developing networks to connect food donors with recipients, and establishing furniture donation services, among others.
