The Mayor’s Zero Waste Challenge resulted in the total diversion of 36,910 tons of material being diverted from landfill and incineration, which results in an enormous environmental benefit to our city… Great Forest played an important role in helping participants like the Peninsula New York reach a 67% diversion rate… It’s organizations like these that are helping forge the way to the city’s goal of Zero Waste to landfill by 2030. — SARAH CURRIE-HALPERN, PROGRAM LEAD FOR THE NYC MAYOR’S ZERO WASTE CHALLENGE
