Zero Waste Events
Just because Roseville holds events that attract hundreds of people, doesn't mean we have to make tons of trash.  Instead we make some of our activities Zero Waste events.  That means we plan to reduce the waste we generate, then we work to recycle or compost as much of the waste we do have.  More than 95% of waste generated gets reused, recycled or composted.  Thus we take something many people think of as trash and turn it into a treasure.
