In 2021, the NYC Housing Authority (NYCHA) released its Sustainability Agenda – committing to re-envisioning waste management and recycling, including new tools such as the waste calculator.

NYCHA’s waste calculator, based on the model developed for the Zero Waste Design Guidelines for New York City, is helping improve cleanliness and provide access to composting and recycling for residents. NYCHA’s calculator estimates waste storage needs at developments broken down by material type and projected levels of resident participation.

During this workshop, we will discuss:

  • Background on zero waste in NYC and NYCHA
  • Overview of data sources, analysis, and methods
  • Video demonstration of NYCHA’s Waste Calculator
  • Discussion about the development and use of waste calculators by public & private entities
  • Q&A session
