Recycling and Columbus really do belong together. That’s why the city named this service RecyColumbus – it’s designed to show our pride and excitement in being part of a greener community.
*NOTE: The City of Columbus will expand RecyColumbus to residents at eligible condominium and apartment complexes, along with rowhouses and townhomes along city streets beginning March 3, 2014. Entire condominium and apartment complexes that currently use only 90- or 300-gallon trash containers serviced by the City of Columbus will be eligible for the expanded recycling program, along with attached townhomes along city streets. The properties must have enough room to store the 64-gallon recycling carts between biweekly recycling collections to be eligible.
Beginning the week of March 3, 2014, the City of Columbus will begin collecting yard waste and recycling on the same day rather than on alternating weeks. The change will make the bi-weekly collections of recycling and yard waste more efficient and make it easier for residents to keep track of their collection day. The collection day of the week will not change, but the week of collection may change. For example, recycling collected on the first and third Monday of a month may move to the second and fourth Monday of a month. Residents will be notified well in advance of the new collection schedule.
