City of Cincinnati Adds New Recyclers To Program
The City of Cincinnati is expanding its enhanced recycling program's reach with a pilot for home owner associations (HOAs), condos and large apartments within the City limits that have historically not been eligible.
The 200 residences in Chestnut Station were delivered a 64-gallon recycling cart April 29, 2012, and will move to every-other-week recycling collection this week. Chestnut Station residents are also now eligible to participate in the Recyclebank program where they can earn coupons, gift cards and discounts to national and local retailers for participating in the recycling program.
Chestnut Station in Hyde Park is the first HOA to be welcomed to the City of Cincinnati's Enhanced Recycling Program since the program's rollout in October 2010. Previously, large multi-family complexes with private trash service did not qualify for the program.
"We are very excited to expand the reaches of the City’s recycling program," said Sue Magness, Cincinnati recycling coordinator. "Cincinnati’s recycling program has proven to be a successful program, increasing recycling participation amongst residents. We are hopeful to see even more fantastic results with the addition of the City's HOAs."
The City is hoping other HOAs will join the recycling program.
To qualify for the program, the owner or board must approve cart storage area, and agree to set the cart(s) at the curb, without garbage, for every other week collection.
If your complex is interested, please contact the City at 513-352-3200.
