In a circular economy, services are designed for sharing and products are designed for reusing, repairing and refurbishing many times before they need to be recycled.


  • Transitioning to a circular economy isn’t just about helping the environment – it’s also a great opportunity to boost our local economy and strengthen community connections. 
  • We support circularity through our business support programs, community workshops, library services and grants.  
  • This statement contains real-life examples of the circular economy. 
  • We advocate for policy changes and economic incentives at state and federal levels that support the transition to a circular economy while continuing to create opportunities in our area.
