ZeroLandfill Atlanta 2019 - Saturday Pick Up Days, 8/17 & 8/24

Saturday, August 17, 2019, 8:00 AM

In the design and construction industry, we find ourselves creating a lot of waste from expired or unused materials collected in our finish libraries that inevitably make their way to the landfill.  So we asked why not repurpose, or upcycle, these materials back into our community? Once unwanted materials can have a new life as free-source materials for educators and non-profit associations, or be transformed into works of art by artists and crafters. IIDA Georgia (International Interior Design Association of Georgia) is hosting the 7th annual ZeroLandfill Atlana event with Wilsonart. To date, we have helped upcycle more than 271,000 pounds of discontinued architectural and interior design samples. Help us beat our previous year totals by participating in the 2019 ZeroLandfill Atlanta event!  Picking up Materials?   We welcome all educators, crafters, hobbyist, artists, students and the general public to join us on Saturday, August 17th and August 24th at Certified Finishes from 8:00 AM until 12:00 PM. First come, first serve! We recommend showing up earlier rather than later during in day.  Register under “Material Pick Up”  Please share the word! Volunteering?   We need lots of volunteers to help us both Fridays, August 16th and 23rd and Saturdays, August 17th and 24th.  Register under "Volunteer" and we will send additional information to you via e-mail. For those in the design industry, each volunteer hour can be self-reported as one USGBC CE hour to help you maintain your LEED GA or AP credentials.
