Cincinnati officials report they are making progress cleaning up a now closed commercial food waste composting facility in Winton Hills.

The city is spending $300,000 to remedy the smelly situation at 5656 Este Avenue.  

Cincinnati is getting ready to spend $300,000 to clean-up a now closed commercial food waste composting facility in Winton Hills.  

There is 40,000 cubic yards of unfinished compost material at the location on Este Avenue.  The stench it is creating has been upsetting nearby residents for several months.  

City Council approved the final piece of funding Wednesday for the clean-up.  

Mayor John Cranley criticized the city department that created the compost site.
