ZEROLANDFILL 

zl 7th annual.jpg

2019 is our 7th year in Atlanta!

In our industry, we find ourselves creating a lot of waste from expired or unused materials collected in our finish libraries that typically end up in the landfill.  So we asked, why not repurpose, or upcycle, these materials back into our community? Once unwanted materials can have a new life as free-source materials for educators and non-profit associations, or be transformed into works of art by artists and crafters.

For the seventh year, IIDA Georgia partnered with Wilsonart to bring the ZeroLandfill event to Atlanta. In 2019, our event will take place over two weekends in August. This years dates are as follow: August 16th, 17th, 23rd, and 24th.

Interested in volunteering? We will need lots of helpers on both Fridays and Saturdays!

We would like to invite you to a wonderful opportunity to pick up free art and school project supplies at ZeroLandfill Atlanta 2019!

In the design and construction industry, we find ourselves creating a lot of waste from expired or unused materials collected in our finish libraries that inevitably make their way to the landfill. 

So we asked, "why not re-purpose, or up-cycle these materials back into our community?" Once unwanted materials can be re-purposed into works of art and materials for educators, non-profit associations, artists, crafters and more. 

IIDA Georgia has partnered with Wilsonart to bring the ZeroLandfill event to Atlanta for a 6th year. In the first six years of Zerolandfill Atlanta, we have helped upcycle 275,000 pounds of discontinued architectural and interior design samples. 

While we can't promise the same samples each year, here is a list of what's typically donated:

  • carpet tiles

  • laminate chips

  • stone samples

  • wood samples

  • fabric & upholsteries

  • wallpaper

  • glass samples
