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

Recycling is collected every two weeks, alternating with yard waste collection.
