The City of Cincinnati and Hamilton County work closely to coordinate recycling services, what the city doesn't provide, the county does. Although the county doesn't offer curbside recycling in any of its 49 political jurisdictions, the City of Cincinnati offers free weekly curbside pickup. There’s an alternative for county residents. The Residential Recycling Incentive Program offered by the county distributes more than a million dollars to communities based on recycling rates and tons recycled. The program allows communities like Cincinnati to offset the costs of a recycling program. Outreach efforts are always underway.
More than 1200 residents continue to utilize recycling services in their own buildings. Due to the number of buildings and many sites in our urban suburbs, I think we’re off to a good start. Other city drop off sites include French Park (Section Road), Mt. Airy Park (Colerain Avenue), Eden Park (Eden Park Drive), Ault Park (Observatory Circle), Clifton (WHT Rd), Durham Recreation Center (Dunham, off Sunset), Hartwell Kroger (Vine Street), East End (Schmidt Field) and North Avondale (Clinton Springs). Most drop off sites are open 6am to 10pm.
