Uptown Waste Diversion
Tri State Trails Summit


UC Sustainability Events Summer 2018

7/25-8/5  Uptown Waste Diversion

2915 Clifton Ave. and 2823 Eden Ave., 9am-6pm

Moving out can generate an excessive amount of waste. In Uptown, most leases end around July 31st, so students and families are cleaning out to move during that week. In the past, this has caused a lot of furniture, trash, and other items to be left on the street or overflowing in dumpsters. In order to prevent this from happening, to divert waste from the landfill, reduce blight, and provide goods for those in need, Uptown is offering extra trash dumpsters, recycling containers, and St. Vincent de Paul donation trailers during this time. 

The bins and trailers will be located at 2915 Clifton Ave. and at the Corryville Rec Center at 2823 Eden Ave. from 9:00am - 6:00pm July 25th-August 5th.

This initiative is a partnership between the University of Cincinnati / UC|sustainability / City Of Cincinnati Government / Keep Cincinnati BeautifulClifton Heights / CUF Neighborhood Association / TriHealth / St. Vincent de Paul - Cincinnati / Uptown Cincinnati / Corryville Community Council / Short Vine .


8/31 Tri-State Trails Summit
