I hope your summer season was enjoyable and favorable.  The Richland County Solid Waste Authority has just completed a very busy summer.  We finished the season in September with a Solid Waste Display Booth at the Bellville Street Fair.  The Staff and I enjoyed talking with many of you at Richland County Fair and the Street Fair.  We encourage you to continue to “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” as many items as possible.

We have started the fall season by scheduling classes for the third grade students of Richland County’s schools at our Facility’s Environmental Classroom.  We will continue scheduling throughout the year.  Richland County school teachers may contact Education Specialist Lori Stone in order to schedule an environmental class.

We have scheduled a “Residential Limited Household Hazardous Waste Collection” for Saturday, October 28th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.  RCRSWMA will also partner at this same time with Mansfield Police Department to collect prescription drugs at the same location.  This special combined collection is for Richland County residents.  Details for this “Special Event” may be found on this website’s News & Events tab.

The Yard Waste Facility located at 441 Cairns Road will remain open unti mid-November.  We will stay open longer if weather permits and tree leaves do not fall quickly.  Please call us after November 16th to verify that we are open.

I hope to see you soon!

Be Safe,
Ken
