Zero Waste Action Plan

The City of Arcata has adopted a Zero Waste Action Plan to help reduce waste generated in the City as much as possible. The City is asking Arcata Community Center and D Street Neighborhood Center renters to consider using the City-provided dishware and/or use rental dishes and linens. Should you choose to use the City’s dishware, we will provide you with the information needed to properly clean and put away the dishes for the next user. The City can also provide you with contact information on reusable dish and linen rental businesses. The City has banned the use of Styrofoam dishware citywide and single use water bottles inside city facilities. If you choose to use throwaway dishware it cannot be Styrofoam. City facilities have sinks, drinking fountains and/or water filling stations as well as reusable pitchers and glassware. Thank you for helping us prevent waste in Arcata.
