A new effort is underway in Cincinnati to address health disparities in urban neighborhoods. First Lady Dena Cranley and about 20 pastors' wives are involved in the program.
Cranley launched the First Ladies Health Initiative Friday during an event at City Hall.
“This initiative will leverage the leadership of the first ladies of the churches of Cincinnati to empower their congregation and community to make smart decisions about health and wellness,” Cranley said.
Items that cannot be recycled are causing some issues for the Rumpke recycling center in St. Bernard. Company workers are being forced to trash some things that are not recyclable and should have never been sent to the facility in the first place.
“Some non-recyclables can easily be sorted out with our advanced technology,” said recycling operation manager Brad Dunn in a statement. “However some of these non-recyclables can injure our employees, damage our sorting equipment or contaminate other recyclables.”
