In-office presentations on the Zero Waste Design Guidelines are available to architects, developers and associated professionals in NYC. This year there is an additional course offering on Design Strategies and Case studies at the District Scale.
For a free consultation on how best to apply zero waste design strategies to a particular project in NYC, see Project Consultation:How to Apply Best Practice Design Strategies to Reduce Waste. Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule.
COTE is keenly aware of the importance of reducing embodied carbon in buildings. At the Embodied Carbon Part 1: The Blindspot in the Building Industry event and workshop last fall, COTE member Kristina Miele launched the AIA New York local chapter of the Embodied Carbon Network, in collaboration with COTE.
Please join us for Embodied Carbon Part 2: Practical Design Decisions for Reducing Embodied Carbon on February 18 (see details here).

DSNY, in partnership with the Department of Transportation (DOT), has released an RFEI seeking creative solutions for containerized refuse and recycling that will:
– increase waste diversion, including by reduction, reuse, and recycling
– reduce the volume of consolidated material set out on City sidewalks
– reduce vehicle miles traveled (VMT) and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with waste collection; and/or
– improve the cleanliness of City streets and sidewalks
The RFEI refers to the Zero Waste Design Guidelines, developed through the AIANY COTE and Center for Architecture:
“Through this RFEI, the City seeks Responses inspired by the best practices as outlined in the Guidelines. Respondents should review Zero Waste Design Guidelines Chapter 3: Collection & Urban Design, which includes examples of best practices, including: sub-surface waste containers; “roll-on, roll-off” containers for private or public use; waste collection containers for public and/or private use; and freight distribution and waste collection micro-centers.”
