Michael T Stoick
Michael Stoick is the zero-waste education coordinator for Eureka Recycling where he specializes zero-waste events, compostable products, waste reduction, specialty recycling programs, and relaying effective recycling tips to students, families, and the community. As the zero-waste school coordinator for Jie Ming Elementary St. Paul’s first zero-waste pilot school Mike is known as "Michael Recycle". Michael believes that composting is the ultimate form of recycling and that being zero-waste doesn’t always mean absolutely no trash, it simply means “we don’t waste any opportunity to reduce, reuse, repair, rethink, refuse, respect, recycle, and compost”.
We are an inclusive citywide coalition of neighbors, businesses, elected officials, and organizations working together to bridge waste reduction awareness with action. We work with elected officials to encourage policy change; connect with community members, businesses, and non-profits; and create education and learning opportunities for individuals and companies.
Advocate, Connect, & Educate - Together we can ACE Zero Waste!
