The amount of waste created by central Ohio residents and businesses is staggering.  In fact, every resident generates an average of 9 to 10 pounds of waste each day, and about half of that material is sent to the County landfill. With only so much landfill space available, it’s more important than ever that we reuse, recycle, compost or divert as much as we can.

The City of Columbus will launch Weekly Residential Recycling Collection the week of June 12, 2023. The expanded service supports Climate Action Plan goals to achieve clean neighborhoods and a healthy environment for all residents.

To help residents prepare for the changes, we have developed a Fact Sheet and Q&A Document that will assist with some of the most common questions.
