Jones is expected to take the reins of the nonprofit group just as it transitions to a new home at 6400 Arapahoe Road in Boulder at the end of the year.
Eco-Cycle handles recycling and compost programs for Boulder County. The group encourages zero-waste practices, meaning no waste goes into a landfill. The group also runs the Center for Hard-to-Recycle Materials, or CHaRM, which recycles computers and other products.
Lombardi, through Eco-Cycle International, will work with communities around the world that have expressed interest in creating zero-waste systems. Officials in countries such as Tobago, Nepal, Guam, Romania and France and in other cities in Colorado have all asked for help.
"I am very sad to be leaving the most amazing job of my life, but I am excited to be transitioning into working on Eco-Cycle International and bringing the Eco-Cycle mission to the world outside Boulder County," Lombardi said in a prepared statement.
Eco-Cycle reported a net loss of more than $24,000 in 2012, according to the group's annual report. Revenue was $6,527,438 and expenses and losses were $6,746,825, according to the report.
On the revenue side, the group was funded with $3.2 million in labor and benefits reimbursement from the Boulder County government. Other revenue included $423,000 for recyclable materials sales, and $828,000 in government and commercial contracts.
