Mayor Jackson Joins 236 Mayors Nationwide in Opposing Repeal of Clean Power Plan

ClimateMayors_FinalLast year, Mayor Frank G. Jackson signed on to the Climate Mayors campaign, pledging his support for the Paris Climate Agreement locally though the White House had announced it would no longer honor the agreement. This week, Climate Mayors petitioned the Environmental Protection Agency not to repeal the important Clean Power Plan in a letter to EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt.

Read the letter sent by Climate Mayors to the EPA here.

As a longtime supporter of fighting climate change, Mayor Frank G. Jackson launched a strategic initiative in 2009 to tackle environmental issues in the City of Cleveland with the goal of building a “green city on a blue lake.” Each year, the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, led by Chief of Sustainability Matt Gray, has taken on different themes to promote a more environmentally conscious Cleveland. For example, 2017 was the Year of Vibrant Green Space and 2015 was designated the Year of Clean Water. Each theme of the 10-year initiative includes yearlong outreach opportunities and education events aimed at promoting sustainability in the community.

What defines a Sustainable Cleveland?

  • A community of people from every walk of life working together to reshape Cleveland into a vibrant livable city with thriving businesses and a flourishing natural environment.
  • A resource that offers information and actionable tools so you can make smart, sustainable choices at home, at work and in your community.

ICYMI: City of Cleveland 2018 Waste Pick-Up Schedule Available Online

xCP2B8574.jpgThe City of Cleveland’s Division of Waste Pick-Up Calendar is available for download here, in case you missed it.

In addition to holidays and bulk pick-up dates, the calendar includes information about proper waste set out. Here are some tips to make sure your waste collection is compliant with city set out guidelines:

  • Keep them separated: Be sure to put recycling only in the blue bin. Mixing waste with recycling contaminates the bunch.
  • No stragglers: No waste or recycling should be placed outside of the city-issued roll carts.
  • Rule of three: Remember that the limit for bulk pick-up is three items.
  • Bundle your branches: Yard waste must be cut and bundled for disposal. Bundles cannot exceed 3 feet in length and 2 feet in diameter.
