Zero Landfill Fort Wayne Weekend is an event meant to help divert expired samples, products, office supplies, promotional materials and general materials that businesses gather from the waste stream. Modeled off of groups from around the country, our goal is to help make the greater Fort Wayne area a bit greener, give businesses a chance to support the community helping them clear out some storage space, and support local creatives and educators who are always looking to stretch their limited budgets.
The event will take place the weekend of Feb 23-25:
*Drop Off hours on Friday, Feb 23 from 10am-8pm.
*Public Pick up hours on Saturday & Sunday, Feb 24-25 from 1pm-8pm.
Zero Landfill Fort Wayne events are open to everyone, but with a few focus areas.
- Anyone can drop off materials which have value, (ie, not trash) materials which you or your business no long have uses for. Examples include: Samples & promotional materials, lightly used/damaged materials, excess office supplies, art supplies, etc. There is a specific need for paper (all varieties), watercolor paints and brushes, spray paint, and fabric.
- Anyone can pick up items from the event. While we are promoting this project to creatives, educators, and students, it is also a useful place to get materials for craft projects or perhaps even small home repair projects, etc.
