On its Zero Waste journey, Missoula, Montana lags far behind on recycling, recovering only 20% of its total waste. Since 2014, the grassroots citizens group called Zero Waste Missoula has been working to improve Missoula’s low recycling rate and turn the city’s attention to waste reduction. Thanks to this citizens’ advocacy the Missoula City Council passed the first Zero Waste resolution in Montana in 2016 and continues to work on improvements, such as building a composting facility and expanding its curbside recycling to twice-monthly, single stream collection.
