ALL ITEMS TO BE EMPTY, CLEAN & DRY
Recent changes in recycling markets have forced Regional Processing Centers to eliminate some of the items they will accept. The list below is the limit of what should be placed in your recycle cart. Other items may be recyclable, just not in this program.
Newsprint and mixed paper. No tape and place loosely in cart.
Bottles and Jugs - #1 PETE and #2 HDPE with lids removed. Numbers 3 through 7 are acceptable but not desirable.
Bi-metal, steel, and aluminum food and beverage containers
Cardboard and Old Corrugated Containers (OCC); dry and broken down. Do not put "boxes-inside-boxes. Break them down flat and tie with a string or twine (not tape).
Gable top containers from gravy, milk, broth, and whipping cream
STICK TO THE LIST! WHEN IN DOUBT, THROW IT OUT! It’s no longer the quantity of what we recycle. Quality of clean items that are placed loosely in your recycling container will be the focus. For additional information, please log on to www.summitreworks.com
Native Prairie Planting
A portion of the park's turf area between Home and Dublin Roads is the start of a large native flower and grass planting. The Township received a grant from ODNR to transform this area into prairie. While turf is necessary for some areas of the park, this area requires an extra cost of turf management to the Township and taxpayers. However, prairies require very little maintenance. Converting a portion of the park’s turf area to native flowers and grass can offer substantial cost savings. This will be an ongoing process and could take several years to establish fully. In the process of establishing the area, the Township will be working with several local groups to add signage and bird boxes. If you would like to be involved in any part of the project please email email@example.com.
Volunteer Energy was awarded the low bid supplier for township electric for the Ohio Edison portion of the township starting July 2020. (Switching back to Ohio Edison for generation as Volunteer Energy announced bankruptcy as of April 2022).
The AEP portion of the Township was awarded to Dynegy Energy for a three year supplier contract at a rate of $.04956 effective May 2021.
