COLUMBUS, Ohio – As of this morning, the free curbside recycling program in Columbus is citywide.
Residents in North and Northeast Columbus had their recyclables hauled away, completing the five-part phase-in of RecyColumbus to approximately 191,000 households.
Since the program began last June, more than 10,000 tons of recyclables have been taken collected, saving more than $555,000 in tipping fees at the Franklin County landfill, Mayor Michael Coleman said.
Recycling collections began in the following neighborhoods today:
Far Northeast side east of I-270
Krumm Park (East Columbus Gateway)
Milo-Grogan neighborhood east of I-71
Near East side north of East Broad Street between I-71 and the Columbus-Bexley border
North Linden and South Linden
Northland area south of S.R. 161 and east of I-71
Recycling is collected every two weeks, alternating with yard waste collection.
