The Sanitation Foundation is the official non-profit partner of the New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY). In this series of three interviews, Julie Raskin, Executive Director of Sanitation Foundation, discusses the Foundation’s role in moving NYC towards a Zero Waste Future by working directly with businesses and city residents as well as the critical role the Foundation played in supporting DSNY throughout the COVID pandemic.
The interview includes:
- What is Sanitation Foundation + how has it evolved?
- Projects funded by the Foundation
- Relationship between the foundation and DSNY
Important to note: Around the time this webinar was recorded, many zero waste programs were cut in NYC. Since then, much of the city’s funding has been restored and zero waste programs (like residential composting) are returning this year. To learn more, head to this link here.
