Seeking Input from the Construction, Demolition and Building Material Reuse Industries for Hennepin County’s Zero-Waste Plan

Hennepin County is in the process of developing a Zero-Waste Plan. Once adopted, the operational plan will map Hennepin County to a zero-waste future where 90% or more of the County’s discarded materials are diverted from disposal in landfills, incinerators, and the environment.

Your input as a contractor, architect, or building material reuse reseller is integral in the development of this plan!

The county is committed to conducting an inclusive, collaborative, and transparent stakeholder process during which both experts and concerned residents can come together to provide input on what is needed to realize a zero-waste future.

We are seeking your participation in a 90-minute targeted stakeholder meeting on May 4 from 1:00-2:30 pm. This listening session seeks your input on the following topics:

  • Major obstacles to reaching zero waste
  • Identification of gaps that the county’s zero-waste approach will need to fill
  • Opportunities for Hennepin County, cities, residents, and businesses to transition to a zero-waste future in a manner that advances racial equity and mitigates unintended negative consequences

If you have questions about the stakeholder meetings, the zero-waste planning process, or if you cannot participate in the meeting but would still like to share input, please contact Carolyn Collopy at

We look forward to meeting with you soon!
