debuts enhanced recycling program
Cincinnati launched an enhanced recycling
program, which includes larger recycling carts, every-other-week
collection and the ability to earn rewards for recycling. The
program officially started in October for about 25 percent of
the city residences.
The four-phase rollout of new recycling carts began in September
and citywide implementation will continue through February 2011.
The City is using $750,000 from the Energy Efficiency & Conservation
Block Grants (EECBG) awarded to Cincinnati through the American
Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), or “Stimulus Act,”
to manage the program and to purchase the new recycling carts.
