Dan Palmer, Director of the Lawrence-Scioto Solid Waste Management District was excited about the new that came from Rumpke Monday. Rumpke is reporting the area is on tap to break a recycling record set in 2013 which saw 4 million pounds of material.
Rumpke is reporting, “residents recycled nearly 2 million pounds from January through June 2014, putting them on track to possibly beat their 2013 annual record of 4 million pounds.”
Through a program of the Lawrence-Scioto Solid Waste Management District recycling containers are spread throughout Scioto and Lawrence Counties. The containers allow residents to properly dispose of acceptable items.
The district began its recycling program in 2006 with 29 sites and 29 containers. Currently the program has 34 sites and 89 containers located throughout Lawrence and Scioto counties. Six drop-boxes have been added since January 2014 to meet the recycling needs of residents.
