Racing to Zero: In Pursuit of Zero Waste Previous Broadcasts

KQED World: Sat, Apr 16, 2016 -- 3:00 PM

This program presents a new way of looking at garbage. Instead of tossing waste into a landfill, what happens when a city treats garbage as a resource? This award-winning film festival favorite answers this question by taking an upbeat, often humorous inside look at San Francisco's effort to eliminate all garbage going to landfill by the year 2020. As the people of San Francisco approach the last 20%of the city's goal, this documentary follows the trail of trash behind-the-scenes to determine if zero waste can actually be achieved.
