Columbus Expands Curbside Recycling to Condos and Apartments in 2014
The City of Columbus announced today that the RecyColumbus program will be rolled out to eligible condo and apartment communities starting in February. Previously, the curbside recycling program was only made available to single family homes and buildings with four or fewer residential units, leaving larger apartment and condominium buildings excluded from participation.
“Residents in condo and apartment complexes have asked for the recycling program and we are delivering,” said Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman. “We will build on the overwhelming success of this program and make Columbus even cleaner and greener than before.”
The expansion will add an expected 15,000 customers to the program at properties that have room to store the 64-gallon recycling containers for biweekly collection. The city will begin distributing containers in February, and expect the process to be completed in March.
