National Park Service

Working Toward Zero-Landfill Parks

A unique partnership between Subaru of America Inc., NPCA, the National Park Service, park concessioners and surrounding communities is helping national parks reduce, reuse and recycle preventing tons of waste going to landfills.

NPCA is working to significantly reduce waste at our national parks, starting with three pilot parks: Denali, Grand Teton and Yosemite. Collectively, these three pilot parks welcomed nearly 8.3 million visitors in 2017, who left behind nearly 9 million pounds of waste that could otherwise be recycled or composted. That’s why NPCA is partnering with Subaru of America Inc., the National Park Service, park concessioners and surrounding communities to lead efforts to recycle, compost and reuse waste collected from parks to better protect the environment.
