Event description

Description

In the design and construction industry, we find ourselves creating a lot of waste from expired or unused materials collected in our finish libraries that inevitably make their way to the landfill.

So we asked why not repurpose, or upcycle, these materials back into our community? Once unwanted materials can have a new life as free-source materials for educators and non-profit associations, or be transformed into works of art by artists and crafters.

IIDA Georgia (International Interior Design Association of Georgia) is hosting its 6th annual ZeroLandfill Atlanta event with Wilsonart. To date, we have helped upcycle more than 209,000 pounds of discontinued architectural and interior design samples. Help us beat our previous year totals by participating in the 2018 ZeroLandfill Atlanta event!

Donating Materials? Register under "Material Drop Off" and bring your discontinued or unwanted material samples to make our event a success! Drop off the materials at Certified Finishes on one of our drop off days, Friday, August 17th and Friday, August 24th from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM.

Items accepted and most wanted:

Carpet tiles/samples, ceramic tile, stone samples, fabric (memo size or larger), paint chips or fan decks, laminate chips, resilient flooring, solid surface, ceiling materials, wallcovering, decorative resin products, glass, wood and metal samples.

Please no binders, sample tip cards, magazines or office supplies. Please sort your materials by category for drop-off and utilize the standard labels to assist us in the weight documentation process. Contact ZeroLandfillATL@iidageorgia.org to request a PDF of labels for your use.

If you have a large truck drop off, please give us advance notice at ZeroLandfillATL@iidageorgia.org.

Volunteering? We need lots of volunteers to help us both Fridays, August 17th and 24th and Saturdays, August 18th and 25th.
