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.
Connect with us! 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. Complete the brief contact form so we can keep you updated with program changes and opportunities to provide your input.
