Richland County will celebrate the 2017 “Earth Stewardship Celebration” during the Great American Cleanup months of April and May.  The Richland County Solid Waste Authority is an active member of the Earth Stewardship Celebration Steering Committee, which consists of a group of agencies located within Richland County, who join each year in a partnership to sponsor an Earth Stewardship Celebration for our community.  The 21st Annual Earth Stewardship Celebration will begin at 11:00 am on Thursday, March 30, 2017 with a “Kick-Off” event at the Richland Area Chamber of Commerce located at 55 North Mulberry Street in Mansfield, Ohio.  Elected and other Public Officials will join members of the Earth Stewardship Steering Committee to officially proclaim April and May as Earth Stewardship Months in Mansfield and Richland County.  Richland County Solid Waste has supplies to help promote our local efforts to pick up roadside litter.  Groups and individuals are encouraged to join in a roadside litter collection event during the months of April and May.  For more information you can contact the Richland County Solid Waste Authority at (419)-774-5861 or Kim Hildreth with the Earth Stewardship Steering Committee at (419)-755-9702.

The Richland County Solid Waste Authority will be holding an Earth Stewardship Special Collection on Saturday, April 29, 2017 from 10:00 A.M. to 2:00 P.M. at the Richland County Solid Waste Collection Facility located at 1125 National Parkway in Mansfield.  We will be collecting Smoke Alarms, Carbon Dioxide Detectors, Mercury Thermostats (NO Pressure Switches), Automotive Batteries, Rechargeable Power Tool Batteries, Fire Extinguishers, Dishwashers, Empty Propane Tanks and Mercury Fever Thermometers.  Richland County Solid Waste will give out one free digital Fever Thermometer per household (while supplies last) for the mercury thermometers collected.  I hope to see you on April 29th.

The Compost Facility located at 441 Cairns Road opened on March 16, 2017.  Information pertaining to hours of operation, fees and other pertinent information may be accessed by clicking this website’s “Yard Waste” tab.
