Phyllis P. asks: I'm glad to see weekly recycling coming to Columbus.

  • Any word on food composting?

What they're saying: Good timing! The Division of Refuse Collection is finalizing plans for new drop-off sites at its Alum Creek Drive and Georgesville Road locations, a spokesperson tells us.

  • Residents will be able to bring trash, recyclables, yard waste, bulk items and food waste, and workers will help them sort it properly.

What's more: A pilot program for food waste drop-off at three yet-to-be-named community centers is also in the works, with support from the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio.

Yes, but: There's no news to report on citywide curbside composting.

What's next: We'll let you know once the city announces drop-off site details.
