Eco-Cycle’s Eric Lombardi in the NY Times—toward a Zero Waste society.

Via on Jul 29, 2008

Here’s today’s N.Y. Times article about how Houstonians are among the least enthusiastic recyclers in the U.S. of A. Read to the end—Eric Lombardi of Eco-Cycle is quoted several times.

And here’s our interview with Eric Lombardi, who was quoted in the above NY Times article. Eric is director of Eco-Cycle, one of the nation’s first and most innovative recycling facilities. Founded in 1976, Eco-Cycle has grown under Lombardi’s tenure (starting in 1989) to become the largest community-based recycling organization in the U.S.A. with a staff of 55 and processing nearly 50,000 tons of diverse recycled materials a year. 

PS: Coloradoans may want to check out Eric’s recent endorsement video of Congressional candidate Will Shafroth.
