WASTE LESSA CONSULTING
Solid Waste & Recycling Services by Natalie Lessa
*Women-Owned Small Business Certified*
As a consultant in the sustainability industry for over 8 years, it brings me great joy to work with municipal and corporate clients. You will find me with my boots on the ground researching the reality of waste collection and processing in your Southern California community. Together we can plan for diversion from landfill and set up effective recycling programs that make wasting less both easy and convenient for residents and customers.
What I Offer
Zero Waste Planning
Sometimes a city or business wants to go above and beyond to establish policies and practices to divert its waste. A solid plan with achievable milestones is key.
The boots on the ground help that some communities need to make sure infrastructure is adequate, staff are trained, and programs are set up for success.
Grant Writing & Management
Grants need careful applications, tracking and management to ensure funding is approved and programs are shown to be successful. I can help with that.
Education & Outreach
People want to do the right thing, but they can't if they don't know how. Community based social marketing helps to truly understand behavior and develop education and outreach that works.
