Talking trash: the dirt on the city’s new opt-in recycling program

When the city of Cleveland stopped recycling in April of last year because of high contamination rates and the inability to secure a contract, many residents were disappointed. The Land recently caught up with sustainability director Jason Wood ahead of the Sustainable Cleveland summit, who shared how the city is trying to start fresh and regain trust with its new opt-in recycling program.

About 5,000 households have opted into city’s recycling program so far, officials say

About 5,000 of the city’s more than 150,000 waste division customers have opted into the city’s new recycling program so far, most of them on the west side, according to information provided by Sustainable Cleveland at a community meeting on Wed. Aug. 25. In the coming weeks, the city says it’s planning a big marketing push to increase signups before the Oct. 31 deadline.
