New Recycling Program
Big changes have occurred around the county at our 21 Licking County Recycling full service drop-off locations. The new program has added several items such as glass of any color, cartons, aerosol cans, and phone books. The other noticeably difference is the container style and type. The new containers accept all items together – no separation required and looks totally different from the old style. They are green in color and have a large sticker on the front of them with additional information about the recycling program. The new containers do have a side door for easy access.

Helpful Hint for the Month

Did you know that the time between Thanksgiving and New Years American households on average produce about 25% more trash during this time period? What can you do to help reduce this? Practice the three R’s Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle! Try to reduce the waste you produce by buying only as much as you need. Reuse, by carrying your own reusable bags. Recycle your aluminum cans, cardboard boxes, junk mail, plastics #1 & #2, steel food cans, aerosol cans, glass bottles and jars, cartons, newspapers and magazines. Licking County Recycling offers 21 drop off locations or check with your local waste hauler to see if they offer curbside recycling.
