Uptown Waste Diversion

Organization: UC|Sustainability, City of Cincinnati Office of Environment & Sustainability, and Keep Cincinnati Beautiful 

University of Cincinnati off campus students generate an excessive amount of waste during move in/move out weeks at the end of July each year. In an attempt to divert recyclables and reusable items from the landfill, we'll be hosting a collection drive in two locations throughout the neighborhood each day from July 25 to Sunday August 5.

  1. 2915 Clifton Ave. (TriHealth Parking Lot)
  2. 2823 Eden Ave. (Corryville Rec Center)

We need at least one volunteer per site to staff the collection and ensure that items are placed in the proper containers. We'll have one area for regular trash, a recycling dumpster, and a St. Vincent dePaul trailer for reusable items. Hours are 9:00 am to 6:00 pm daily. There will be a floating supervisor visiting both locations, but we need someone to watch the sites for the duration of the work day.

You may sign up for as many open spots as you wish. We need a minimum of one person per location per shift. 

Volunteers will receive coupons for free Currito and UDF ice cream if they volunteer for at least one 3-hour shift. Cincinnati Zoo tickets will be given to anyone who volunteers a total of more than 9 hours for the duration of the collection drive.

Please contact Megan@KeepCincinnatiBeautiful.org with any questions!

More information will be sent upon registration to volunteer.
