Zero Waste Efforts

Reduce-Reuse-Recycle Today, For a Better Tomorrow

EAH Housing is rolling out a portfolio-wide Zero Waste Contest to keep waste out of landfills, reduce pollution and educate, engage and empower residents to achieve zero waste. This contest will help build a culture of treading lightly as stewards on this planet!
