A sustainable future for Cleveland begins in its neighborhoods. Residents have led the way by adopting more sustainable practices, especially with riding their bikes rather than driving cars as well as composting their food waste rather than letting that go into the waste stream. We seek to capitalize on this momentum by creating Cleveland's very first bike composting service.
In partnership together, Detroit Shoreway Community Development Organization, Bike Cleveland, Rust Belt Gardens, and Groundz Recycling, will establish "Cleveland Bike Composting," which will pick up and deliver food waste from residents using a fleet of bikes, and will drop off the waste at neighborhood community gardens to be composted.
This is an exciting opportunity to bring together the strengths of a diverse group of people to answer a need in our community.
