The Cincinnati Office of Performance and Data Analytics (OPDA) and the Office of Environment and Sustainability (OES) have created a new dashboard that shows recycling participation rates at the neighborhood level for the entire city.

The "CincyInsight: Recycling Participation" dashboard actually shares two kinds of information: 1) "an overview of neighborhood recycling participation for the past 12 months, and a summary of waste types and tonnage," and 2) individual address recycling participation. On that second count, "users may search by street and ZIP code, and change the date range to see recycling participation data as far back as January 2016."

"The data powering this new feature is generated by RFID technology, which enables the City to track each time a City-issued recycling bin is lifted," according to n announcement of the new dashboard posted on the city's website.

The new recycling participation dashboard is the latest in a series—the total number of CincyInsights dashboards now reaches 18, and the city is soliciting ideas for new dashboards.
