For the past 9 months, ZWAC has presented monthly shows combining panel discussions and interviews on hot topics with readings from the oral history of pioneering recyclers. 11/9 is a regular committee meeting where committee members (everyone invited) can talk about things they would like to see advocated for in 2022, when a Recology-drafted state initiative against single-use plastic will be on the ballot. Other topics include the new federal infrastructure bill, CA bottle bill, promoting compost and soil health initiatives, developing Zero Waste entrepreneurship through local economic development support from government, including development of eco-parks like AA02 in Oakland. Speakers lined up for the December and January shows are about recycling products with environmental problems and the promise of mycoremediation. This Show’s Recycling Archives segment will be in memoriam to the late Will Bakx, composting pioneer who passed away over the weekend. We are joined by special guest Ruth Abbe to honor Will and talk about what looks cool for 2022.
