As first announced in December, the City of Columbus Curbside Recycling Program (dubbed “RecyColumbus”) is expanding to cover apartment and condo buildings with four or fewer units. That expansion officially debuts today as blue recycling carts begin being distributed to approximately 16,000 new customers, bringing the grand total up to 200,000 program participants.

“Residents in condo and apartment complexes have overwhelmingly asked for the recycling program and we are delivering,” said Mayor Michael Coleman. “We will build on the success of RecyColumbus and make Columbus even cleaner and greener than before.”

The program was first launched in March 2012, and initially only covered single-family homes city-wide. The addition of smaller apartment and condo buildings was included at the request of those residents.

Those who live in residential buildings larger than four units who want recycling services will continue to have to contract recycling services privately through the building owner or property manager.
