Instead of offices and high education, the Forestry industry also produces no pollution, though this needs a forest resource in the map. And the traffic to your commercial zone will increase because they will import goods instead of them being made locally (because not everyone wants everything to be made of wood)

I thought the rubbish went to the landfill and then to the incineration plant ? I didn't know it could go straight to the incineration plant ?

I was able to get the achievement by downloading a recycling centre asset from the workshop. No pollution but expensive to place in the early game. It may be considered a bit cheaty for the achievement, but I still use the building in every new city. This is what I use: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=432840529

You can also check each Incinerator and make sure they don't consume 50% more than their capacity... Delete the ones that is burning more than half of it's capacity and build a new one elsewhere.

I mean, that has a brown ground... cause some of them don't pollute the ground.. especially the new ones :D

@Archie, try deleting the Incinerators that is in brown.. and build a new one away from it.. if you have 50% more capacity, it should work... I was able to achieve my 2nd 0% by this.. try it :D

I was able to achieve 0% ground pollution when I deleted the incinerators. However, I was also able to achieve 0% ground pollution with extra incinerators but took me up to 100k population and the monument build...

Hi Poké Smile, I also tried this. My capacity is above these additional 50%. I have not yet unlocked the monument, so I will wait for this. Don't know whats wrong, I have checked everything about a thousand times. :D
