Who We Are
The Wayne Green Team is a group of community volunteers focused on minimizing waste and increasing sustainable behavior throughout our community. You'll see us at public events educating people on how and what to recycle, teaching Green lessons to elementary school students, and helping college students donate their household items instead of dumping them. We also work to obtain grants to help fund projects, such as hosting e-waste collection events or buying recycling equipment.
In November of 2013, we were selected by WasteCap Nebraska as one of five rural communities to participate in the Zero Waste Planning Project. With their guidance, we are learning how to bring together leaders to develop community-based strategies for reducing waste through policy, infrastructure and education.
