End Garbage in Houston

This petition had 322 supporters


Hello Friends--

With your help, we won a battle to end a disastrously bad recycling deal for Houston. But the war against Zero Waste by the landfill companies still goes on with a 'greenwashing' proposal to do pretend recycling.

To win this, we need to convince Houston's City Council to pursue a true Zero Waste solution: EcoHub, which would recycle 95% of everything Houstonians threw away.

Now that China will ban imports of recycled paper and plastic, over 75 percent of the recycling collected will not have any place to be sold, this is the time to build the first EcoHub. We will process waste at a lower cost than dumping it, AND we are offering tens of millions in savings and new revenues to the City to support vital city services, such as first-responders.

Sounds like a no-brainer, right? Unfortunately the waste industry got the politicians to push through a greenwash version that will allow them to keep landfilling 90% of everything they collect. 

My name is George Gitschel. For the past 25-years, I’ve been on a mission to change the world by bringing an end to garbage. My dream is to first create a Waste Free™ Houston, then Waste-Free™ America and, ultimately, a Waste-Free™ World.

I invented--and received 21 patents for--the EcoHub, which is an integrated recycling and green-manufacturing complex that transforms virtually everything you throw away into sustainable consumer products. Best part is, you don't have to separate your waste--my invention does that for you and recycles 95% of it.

Thank you for for helping create a waste-free world!

With gratitude, George Gitschel
