Zero Waste Vashon (ZWV) is a group of Vashon Island neighbors working in partnership with King County to make our island a model green community by finding practical ways to recycle our waste stream into useful products. Working toward a zero-waste future, we can have revitalized soils, cleaner water, cleaner air, and locally sourced energy.
