Executive Order 77

In response to Governor Ralph Northam’s Executive Order Seventy-Seven (EO 77) “Virginia Leading by Example to Reduce Plastic Pollution and Solid Waste,” the Mason Sustainability Council (MSC) launched the Circular Economy and Zero Waste (CEZW) task force in the spring of 2021.

EO 77 mandates solid waste reduction and the elimination of single-use plastics and polystyrene at all state executive branch state agencies, which includes Mason.

The CEZW Task Force is leading Mason’s EO 77 compliance efforts and you can find more information about their work and EO 77 resources for the Mason community here.
