Join us for one more free green class this month, this time on the rewards of recycling! Learn exactly what you can and can’t recycle in your curbside bin. Also find out how you can get great benefits from recycling such as gift cards to your favorite restaurants, stores and attractions. Get an update about the City of Cincinnati’s enhanced recycling program. In the past year, the city switched from 18 gallon bins to larger 63 and 96 gallon rolling carts. As of December 2010, with just 50% of the city having received the new carts, the monthly tonnage record was exceeded, in the 21 year history of the program. Over 1500 tons was recycled, 300 tons higher than any month in history. Now, 8 months later, find out how much more has been recycled. RecycleBank will also be here to show how it pays to recycle.
Recycling rates have increased from 40% to 75% in the past year, and have saved the city over $900,000 while creating jobs and diverting so much waste from entering the landfill.
