Is it just me or is it incredibly hard? I'm frustrated. I have a whole trunk filled with recyclables and I've been driving around looking for recycling bins because our neighborhood doesn't have recycling. Why is it so hard? Every city I've lived in the US or other countries always had convenient recycling, usually a trash bin AND a recycling bin for every single house, and at every apartment. Am I doing something wrong?

The city of Columbus DOES have curbside recycling. I have Columbus garbage, but live in Reynoldsburg and we have large blue recycling bin that gets picked up every other Tuesday. They started phasing them in during the spring and summer.

Here's a link to their website: Department of Public Service, Columbus, Ohio

Here's a map of their rollout schedule: http://publicservice.columbus.gov/up...20in%20map.pdf

Do you live in an apartment complex? If you don't normally get curbside trash pickup, you wont get recycling.

Thanks for the links. I am renting a townhouse on the borderline of columbus and gahanna. The subdivision is fairly new (still building in the back) and it consists of single family homes and townhouses. I don't have a large blue recycling bin, and no one in the neighborhood has them either. There is a fire station near by but it only takes paper and nothing else. I've been taking all the recycling to a kroger close to OSU. I just figured there has to be a better way somehow! I just moved here a month ago, and haven't had a chance to interact with the neighbors to figure out how they've been recycling. My trash gets picked up every friday but I haven't seen a recycling truck.

Check 311.columbus.gov and see if you should have one.
