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.
