Residents of Grandview Heights now have multiple options for advancing sustainability and reducing food waste.
“We are thrilled to offer a free drop-off food waste program through this partnership with Kids That Compost. I would like to recognize President Keeler’s years of work on this issue to help bring this forward. We appreciate Kids That Compost offering this equitable, inclusive option as a community service at no cost to the residents or the City,” said Mayor Greta Kearns.
“I am excited to see our community continue to expand our environmental programming,” said Council President Emily Keeler. This, in addition to the Residential PACE legislation passed this spring, are positive steps towards creating a more sustainable Grandview Heights.
