City of Dallas "Zero Waste" Campaign
BOMA Greater Dallas supports the City of Dallas Zero Waste by 2040 Initiative and is working with the city and other organizations to determine the current level of recycling by our member buildings. This project began in 2014 with a benchmarking survey sent to all BOMA members. Follow-up surveys were sent in 2015 and 2016.
