The TRUE Zero Waste certification system enables facilities to define, pursue and achieve their zero waste goals, cutting their carbon footprint and supporting public health. Facilities achieve certification by meeting program requirements, including achieving an average of 90 percent or greater overall diversion from landfill, incineration (waste-to-energy) and the environment.
