Cincinnati residents urged to drop off fall yard waste

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The City of Cincinnati's Solid Waste District is offering residents tips on getting rid of yard waste this fall.

Yard waste may be set out in a separate container with or commingled with regular garbage, and will be collected as such. It is helpful for crews if yard waste such as sticks and branches are tied together in 3 foot sections or put in a container.

Citizens are encouraged to engage in alternate, 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. Residents are strongly encouraged to utilize these free sites for disposal of yard waste.
