Thanks to everyone who came out and stopped by the SWMD booth at the 2021 Wood County Fair!  We had a great time interacting with Wood County residents and encouraging people of all ages to recycle right.  Thanks to those who helped make the Fair more sustainable by recycling plastic bottles, cans, and cardboard.  Over 1,460 pounds of material was diverted from the landfill!

Results of our 2017 Tire Amnesty Event

Our totals are showing a collection of 3,607 tires from 429 residents.  The tires filled nearly 4 semi-trailers and were hauled away by Liberty Tire to be recycled properly.  This event was funded by a grant through the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.  At this time no plans are in place for a future event.     

Residents are encouraged to use our Household Recycling Guide for a list of locations accepting tires for proper disposal on a daily basis.
