Metro Public Works is holding public meetings to discuss Nashville’s Long-term Zero Waste master plan.

The point of the meetings is to give the public a chance to weigh in on the city’s current waste manage system with ways to improve it and increase waste reduction.

The ultimate goal of the master plan is to achieve zero waste to the landfill.

The first meeting will be held Tuesday, June 12 from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Madison Police Precinct, 400 Myatt Dr., Madison, TN.
