The City of Cincinnati recognizes waste reduction and diversion as critical in our effort to keep our communities clean and litter-free, and key components of our path to sustainability. With the right systems in place, most so-called waste materials are actually valuable resources. Cincinnati began offering curbside recycling to residents and businesses in 1989, and has steadily increased participation and waste-diversion rates over time. With the introduction of RFID technology in recycling carts, the City has been able to use recycling analytics data to target outreach efforts and improve participation, reduce our environmental footprint and save money.
Disclaimer: RFID technology is not perfect! If you find an error in recycling collection on this dashboard, please call 513-352-3200.
