About The Recycling Program
For more than 20 years, Cincinnati residents have made recycling a daily habit, diverting more than 250,000 tons of material from the waste stream. In 2010, residents recycled a record 14,343 tons of metal, glass, plastic, and paper -- 1,153 more tons than the previous year!
Recycling efforts in Cincinnati:
- Conserved enough energy to power every home in Cincinnati for 6 days.
- Reduced more greenhouse gas pollution than if every household in Cincinnati did not drive a car for more than 3 weeks.
- Saved 127,627 trees from being harvested.
On average, each household in Cincinnati recycled 193 pounds in 2010 -- 14% of all the waste each household generates.
- City To Revamp Recycling Rewards Program
After evaluating program participation and weighing program costs, the City of Cincinnati and Recyclebank have decided to end the current rewards program for Cincinnati residents effective April 30, 2013.
