Columbus Ohio what a bunch of garbage!

monopoly game piecesSomethings never change.  One of my tops posts for traffic on Discover Columbus (my first blog which used to be named Columbus Best Blog) was Color Coded Trash written waaaaay back in February 2006.   Discover Columbus never got much traffic so it is odd that “garbage” like that gets read.

Please forgive me for ‘recycling’ this topic.

“Columbus uses a color coded trash system with a rotating calendar throughout the year.  You have to respect a Refuse Division with a posted vision.  You have to respect a division that moves that much refuse. “

In Columbus Ohio, it’s Navy Day today.  I thought there would be a map on the refuse division info on the city website in this day and age.  You can do so much with mapping and websites.  I was picturing a color coded map.  Maybe it’s there and I just don’t see it.  Instead you can look up by address on the website.   ”To look up your designated color or day, “click here.”  the site says.

The City of Columbus Website about Refuse Collection

Did you even know about the  “Refuse Collection Ball” or “Doris the Recyclasaurus”?  I don’t believe I knew of either until I read the history …  trash collection dates back to 1906 in the City of Columbus.  

There are new things on the horizon in Columbus refuse collection too, more of a focus on green,  recycling… If there was a map I could see if there was a green area.   

No… green area Green is for everyone in Columbus Ohio,  Get Green Columbus

Wow.. your town is really organized! Are they recylcing at this time or just going to improve on the system?
I can barely remember that we put out recycle bins on wednesdays.. so I put them out on Saturdays also.
Good to see the ‘green’ initiative coming soon. We could all use that across the nation.
informative post for locals!

We are NOT organized for recycling…. It has not been big. Hopefully that will change. Some of the suburbs do a good job when it comes to recycling. Thanks for the comment Nick.
