Every day is Earth Day in Dublin, Ohio. But when April comes around, everything becomes a bit greener. 

Here are some small things you can do to help make a sustainable Dublin. 

Hop on a Bird Scooter 

Bird Scooters

Ditch the car and explore Downtown Dublin via Bird Scooters! Part of the Micro-Mobility initiative from the City of Dublin, visitors and residents can get around Dublin in an efficient and eco-friendly way!  Scooters are available in specified parking areas around Bridge Park and Historic Dublin. Find guidelines and safety information regarding Bird Scooters here.  

Compost at Home  

Get the whole family involved by recycling your food and yard waste scraps. Dublin community members may dump their compost bins at the City’s 24/7 waste drop-off location, courtesy of Go Zero Services, at the City of Dublin Service Center parking lot at 6555 Shier Rings Road.  

Visit the City of Dublin website to learn more about what items you can and cannot compost.  

Help Keep Dublin’s Parks Clean

Kiwanis Riverway Park - Spring  

Dublin has over 60 parks for you to enjoy. The next time you’re out exploring the 1,500+ acres of parks, take some time to look around and pick up any loose trash you may see. Turn it into an afternoon activity with friends and family by reserving a “Keep Dublin Green” Kit which includes trash and recycle bags, gloves, safety vests, a first aid kit and even a scavenger hunt. To reserve a kit, please complete this interest form

While you're picking up the parks, make sure to check in on your Dublin Park Pass

Recycle Styrofoam Waste  

Want to throw away that old Styrofoam packaging? Why not recycle instead? In coordination with the City of Hillard, the City of Dublin offers a 24/7 drop-off site located in the City Service Center parking lot, 6555 Shier Rings Road.
