ZeroLandfill Cleveland’s 2014 summer harvests will take place on Friday, August 15 and Friday, August 22.

A warehouse filled with art and craft materials, free for the taking, just before school starts: what terrific timing!

ZeroLandfill asks you to note that:

  • Pollination and harvest hours are only during the hours and dates posted.
  • All questions should be directed to IIDA Cleveland/Akron City Center at clevak@gmail.com. Please do not contact the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste Facility with any questions.
  • All volunteer positions are currently filled. ZeroLandfill thanks you for your willingness to help but cannot accept any walk-ins.

ZeroLandfill is a project of BeeDance, LLC, an online marketplace that connects abandoned assets destined for the waste stream with local audiences who will use these assets in their programs and processes.

ZeroLandfill collects specification samples from architectural, interior and graphic design firms and distributes them to local artists and arts educators. Since 2006, the ZeroLandfill project team has reduced pressure on local landfills by distributing over one million pounds of these materials.
