Recology Presents: Racing to Zero
The goal is ZERO. ZERO garbage going to landfills. Racing to Zero is a new documentary film that depicts garbage as a critical “resource.” Racing to Zero encourages us to “change our relationship to garbage” to reduce the amount of waste we generate, keep materials out of landfills, and find new uses for our discards. The film examines cultural practices that emphasize consumption. Racing to Zero includes commentary from Robert Haley of San Francisco’s Department of the Environment and specifically highlights efforts undertaken in San Francisco to increase recycling and composting, which helps us get closer to zero waste. Here is link to the film trailer: http://vimeo.com/77167378 Please RSVP, space is limited! Attend Event

Dear San Francisco Merchants Association, Please send us your Trick or Treat information for each of your merchant streets so we can add them to NowMap. See Sacramento Street's Annual Trick or Treat for an example of how we can help you promote. We are hoping to update our map by Wednesday, before our big publicity push with local radio, news and Moms/parents groups. NowMap provides local merchants with FREE publicity and visibility, even if nearby users don't follow each merchant on other social media. Our mission is to help local merchants compete better with online and drive more customers to stores by allowing merchants to publicize in-store events, sales, new merchandise arrivals and more. Please email or call me if you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org 415 309 8196 We hope to have as many San Francisco merchants listed on our Halloween map as possible!

World Series Public Safety Update
The City and County of San Francisco has a plan to ensure that any celebrations that follow a possible San Francisco Giants win [editor's note: or loss?] remain peaceful. The San Francisco Police Department will have a strong uniformed presence in the Mission District and other areas that experienced issues in the past. The Police Department will monitor pedestrian and vehicular traffic. The Police Department will partner with the Department of Public Works to empty trash bins. Additionally, the Department of Public Works is working with Recology to reach out to merchants to have his or her garbage out by 6 p.m. and picked up at that time. The San Francisco MTA will have parking control officers to keep traffic moving. SFMTA will also de-energize some of its overhead lines and reroute buses around any problem area. Here is what merchants can do to ensure they prepare for any celebration: If you have not been contacted by Recology to have your trash picked up by 6 p.m., do not place your trash cans out until the celebrations have concluded Secure any items you may have outside your business (such as tables, chairs or merchandise) prior to and following the game In an emergency, please call 9-1-1. If you have a non-emergency, please call 415-553-0123 If any merchant has any other questions or concerns, you can reach me via email at email@example.com or my personal cell phone at (510) 579-8222. I will be available before, during and after the game. Manish Goyal, Program Manager
