Wood County Solid Waste Authority to Promote Recycling Efforts

SEATTLE (Recycling Monster): The officials from the Wood County Solid Waste Authority (SWA) highlighted the need and importance of recycling. Recycling keeps materials out of the landfill, noted Sarah Robinson, Director of the County SWA. She urged residents to be part of the recycling process.

In an effort to promote environment, the SWA has decided to sponsor a number of cleanup and recycling events. According to recent figures released by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), only around 94 million tons of trash were recycled and composted, out of the total generated trash of 292.4 million tons in 2018. The total trash recycled was just over 69 million tons.

The SWA will sponsor a Paint Collection Event at the Williamstown Welcome Center on Saturday, April 27, in association with Waste Management & Williamstown Lions Club. Another such event will be held in Belleville on Saturday, August 31.

In addition, a Countywide Spring cleanup will be held at the Erickson All-Sports Facility on Saturday, May 18. The event will collect scrap metals, appliances, bulky trash items, freon, paint and tires. Also, Wood County SWA plans to add a collection event at the Waverly Vol Fire Department this year, the date and time of which will be announced later.
