Department of Public Services Changes in Service

City Of Cincinnati Government – Considering the COVID-19 public health crisis, the Department of Public Services (DPS) is making some necessary adjustments to its operations to protect employees and residents.

DPS will continue to maintain priority areas of operation such as trash collection, maintaining a safe right-of-way, servicing City vehicles, and keeping City facilities safe and operating. The following programs will be suspended or delayed so DPS can focus its efforts on the priority areas of operation:

🔹Yard Waste collection will be suspended until June 1.

🔹Bulk item collection will be suspended until June 1.

🔹Neighborhood Community Cleanups (Blitz) delayed until further notice.

There are three locations Cincinnati residents are able to take their yard waste as part of the Hamilton County "Yard Trimmings Drop-Off" program. (http://www.hamiltoncountyrecycles.org/…/yard_trimming_drop-…)

The proposed plan of action was developed to best maintain these essential services as effectively and efficiently as possible. Residents can still submit service requests through 5916000.com and the Fix it Cincy! mobile app but DPS asks residents to be aware of the updated service plan.

This is a rapidly changing and unprecedented situation and DPS and the City of Cincinnati appreciate residents’ understanding as these difficult decisions are made.
