Drop off sites announced after Cincinnati cuts yard waste pickup

The City of Cincinnati suspended curbside collection of yard waste from homes and businesses earlier this year. Due to budget reductions, separated yard waste will no longer be collected. Regular garbage collection will continue to occur on regularly scheduled days.

Here are the options for disposing of unwanted yard waste:

  • The City is encouraging citizens to engage in alternative, environmentally-friendly uses for their yard waste, such as composting and mulching whenever practical.
  • Basic information about composting and a downloadable brochure for beginners are available from Hamilton County's Backyard Composting page. http://www.hamiltoncountyrecycles.org/
  • Several yard waste drop-off sites are in operation across Hamilton County.
