Let’s get Circular, Cleveland.

Circular Cleveland is an initiative to rethink our local economy, who it benefits and who it costs. It’s an effort to design waste and pollution out of our economic system, keep products and materials in use as long as possible, protect and regenerate nature, and create new, green jobs where they’re needed most.

We can’t recycle our way out of the problem, but it’s a good start. Meet the guy who’s leading Cleveland’s recycling renaissance.
