Cincinnati is a step closer to trashing its current policy of residents only being able to put out one container of garbage for pick-up.  Some have widely criticized the requirement and the city has never really enforced it.  

If Council approves the changes, residents will be able to use additional containers.

Cincinnati officials will likely amend a controversial policy put in place last fall which limited most households to one container of trash per week. 

Gerald Checco with Public Services said the city is not ready to implement those new waste regulations anyway.  He said his department will be working on amendments.  He made a presentation Monday to city council’s neighborhood committee.

The changes would let some households have more than one container as long as it can be picked up by the city's automated trash trucks.

Starting today, Cincinnati residents and business owners will notice a change in the way the city collects garbage.

For residents it means using trash carts, which were delivered throughout the spring and summer. Nearly 88,000 carts have been dropped off since the program began in April.

The City of Cincinnati is beginning the second phase of a program to deliver new trash carts to city residents.

Households that have their trash collected on Tuesdays will be getting carts throughout May.

Cincinnati will begin making changes to its garbage collection system starting next week.  

That’s when workers will begin distributing 65-gallon trash carts to about 90,000 residents. That process will take until at least August to complete.
