We were excited to see so many of you join us for our first virtual Quarterly Meeting of 2020. Our Chief of Sustainability, Jason Wood, started us off with an overview of where Sustainable Cleveland is heading beyond 2019 to build off the momentum generated in the first 10 years of the initiative and continue progress towards becoming a green city on a blue lake. You can learn what we've been up to so far here.
Our Sustainability Director, Kristin Hall, also provided an update on the City's recycling program and efforts underway to reduce waste in Cleveland, while supporting a local circular economy. As the City of Cleveland works to evaluate and update our recycling program, it is important for us to keep residents informed and engaged throughout the process. Please complete the brief contact form here so we can keep you updated with program changes and opportunities to provide your input. If you have specific questions, feel free to contact the Mayor's Office of Sustainability at [email protected].
We had a lot of great questions posed to us at the meeting. Questions asked and answered during the meeting may be found here. Questions asked in the Chat Box and answered may be found here.

Is it spring yet? These 60- and 70-degree days have us thinking about warmer weather, and everyone knows Cleveland comes alive in the spring and summer months with plenty of events every night of the week. As you begin to plan your social calendar and summer get-togethers, we encourage you to be conscious of the waste generated at your event and consider taking measures to reduce this waste.
