FALLBROOK – Michael Wonsidler, program coordinator for San Diego County Solid Waste Planning & Recycling, will speak 6 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 27, at the Fallbrook Library, 124 S. Mission Road. His talk is presented by the Fallbrook Climate Action Team.

The free presentation "Zero Waste" explains a movement of sustainable living. Attendees will learn how the population can solve the serious issue of pollution for a safer, cleaner tomorrow. Solid waste accounts for 3 percent of the unincorporated areas of San Diego County's greenhouse gases.

The recently passed Climate Action Plan projects a reduction in greenhouse gases,' as part of the overall plan, increasing the percentage of solid waste diversion away from landfills from 75 to 80 percent by 2030. It is central to the plan.

The county Solid Waste Planning & Recycling Program engages businesses, schools and residences to enhance recycling and improve resource efficiency.

Wonsidler administers the North San Diego Recycling Market Development Zone program, which has awarded over $5 million in low-interest loans from California for facilities processing plastics, tires, asphalt shingles and compostable materials.
