Duane Jager, Executive Director of ReUse Works

Duane is the founding executive director of ReUse Works and Appliance Depot and is currently developing a second “jobs from waste” project.  ReUse Works is one of several nonprofits started by Duane.  Before moving to Bellingham in 2002, he was the founder of ReUse Industries, the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, the Community Kitchen, and a homeless shelter back in Ohio.  Duane is a strong advocate for local sustainability, and views waste as a resource for economic development.  There’s also pretty good chance you’ll find him at the monthly Green Drinks events in Bellingham.
