Waste Reduction & Composting: July 2020 Virtual Meeting Recap

 

For July's topic we focused on waste reduction and recycling. Sustainability Director, Kristin Hall, took a deep dive into our recycling challenges and provided updates on how residents can continue to rethink and reduce their waste. We also discussed ways you can stay engaged as Cleveland updates its curbside recycling program.
