Who is ZWA?

Zero Waste Associates – Global Leaders in Zero Waste

 Zero Waste Associates (ZWA) is a DBA partnership formed between Richard Anthony Associates (RAA) and Gary Liss & Associates (GLA). RAA and GLA have developed or contributed to the majority of Zero Waste community plans produced in the United States today. In fact, we have worked on more Zero Waste community plans than any other individual or business in the United States.

Our collective experience literally spans the globe, ranging from California to Hong Kong, Austin to East Anglia, UK. We have organized and participated in workshops and programs about Zero Waste in France, England, Switzerland, Italy, China, Japan, the Philippines, Canada, Mexico and throughout the United States.

GLA and RAA are the lead authors of the Global Principles for Zero Waste Communities as adopted by the Zero Waste International Alliance to guide the development of Zero Waste by communities throughout the world.
