I hope the year 2017 has been kind and prosperous to all. The Richland County Solid Waste Authority has been very busy this entire year.
The Solid Waste Authority participated in a Special Prescription Drug Take Back collection on October 28th. There were 70 residents that dropped off prescription drugs at our 1125 National Parkway collection facility during this special collection. Richland County Solid Waste also conducted a Limited Household Hazardous Waste collection on October 28th. There were 55 vehicles that participated in this special collection events.
The Yard Waste Facility, located at 441 Cairns Road, closed for the season on November 30th and will re-open in the middle of March 2018. You may bring your cut live Christmas Trees to the front gate of the Yard Waste Facility or to one of our 14 permanent Drop-Off Recycling locations from December 26th through January 15, 2018. Please remove all glitter and ornaments so that the trees may be ground into mulch.
The Solid Waste Authority’s Third grade Environmental Classroom classes have started and any Richland County school wishing to participate may call our Environmental Classroom Teacher, Lori Stone, at (419)-774-5861 in order to schedule a class.
Please remember to “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” as many items
I would like to wish all a safe Merry Christmas and Happy New Year during this Holiday season.
