8th Annual Tosa Green Summit
Please save the date of Saturday, September 8 for the 2018 8th annual Tosa Green Summit. The summit will again be held at the Wauwatosa Civic Center, 7725 W. North Avenue, and feature exhibits from 10 am to 1 pm. Last year we had 27 exhibitors and over 200 attendees who built their awareness about sustainability initiatives that ranged from energy, water, transit, land, food, and climate.
We are also continuing our very successful theme of taking action by partnering with MMSD's annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection; Wauwatosa Police Department’s CrimeStopper initiative offering electronic recycling, shredding, and medicine collections; Better Earth Textile Recycling; and Dream Bikes. These partnerships will create a one stop shop to recycle and dispose of things you no longer need. Last year, we collected:
- 28,205 lbs. of household hazardous waste (516 participants)
- 4,800 gallons of shredded paper (filling fifty 96 gallon totes)
- 221.6 lbs. of Medication
- 661 lbs. of clothing and shoes
- 36 bikes (plus 1 trailer and 1 jogging stroller)
