Waste Audit at Manzanita Reservation

Dec 06, 2022 9:00AM—2:00PM


Manzanita Reservation Boulevard, CA 91905

Cost $0.00


Have you ever wondered just what happens to your trash when you throw it in the garbage? Join Solana Center for our Waste Audit at the Manzanita Reservation and find out!

We need volunteer support as we sort, weigh, and tabulate waste at the Manzanita Reservation so we can put the cap on our waste stream and contribute to a culture that “closes the loop” in our resource management system. 

The waste audit is a great opportunity for those interested in individual and community habits around waste so that we can identify problems at the source and propose practical solutions going forward to help us take care of our planet!

Sandwich lunch provided. Carpooling from Solana Center in Encinitas is available on a first come first serve basis. Please reach out to volunteer@solanacenter.org to inquire about ride-sharing options for this event.
