Residential recycling collection begins in north and northeast Columbus on Friday, February 1 for approximately 48,000 households. This marks the fifth and final phase of RecyColumbus. With the addition of Phase 5 households, approximately 191,000 homes will now be able to recycle.
"Columbus residents have enthusiastically welcomed recycling in all neighborhoods where the program has been implemented so far," said Mayor Coleman. "Since the program was started in June, more than 10,000 tons of recyclables have been collected, saving more than $555,000 in tipping fees at the County landfill."
Phase 5 Columbus neighborhoods that are now eligible for this new city service include:
On the Friday pickup, residents should roll the cart to the same location as their trash for pickup by 6 a.m. of their collection day and roll it back to their storage point within 24 hours of collection. Residents who live in a single-family home, or a building of four attached units or less that is not part of a complex, are eligible for this new city service. If you do not qualify, but would like to be considered in the future to receive this service, please contact the City of Columbus 311 Customer Service Center at 614-645-3111 or online at www.311.columbus.gov.
