Clermont recycling expands, improves



By Kristen Muthig

BATAVIA - The recent expansion of Clermont County's recycling centers has already boosted the program.

The Adams-Clermont Solid Waste District added 14 Clermont locations for recycling drop-offs in early August. The 21 Clermont centers have already seen an increase in amounts dropped off not only because of the new convenience, but also because of additions in what items can be recycled and sorted through improved technology, officials say.

Previously, newspaper and white office paper had to be separated and many types of paper could not be accepted at all. Now all can be recycled except for food-soiled paper or paper with foil. Cardboard, sticky notes, colored paper, envelopes and magazines are all now acceptable.

For more information, see the Adams-Clermont Solid Waste District Web site at www.oeq.net.

New recycling locations:

• Amelia and Pierce Township: Pierce Township Hall on Locust Corner Road and at Clermont County Water Works on Lewis Road.

• Batavia: Batavia Township Hall on Old Ohio 32; Clermont County Permit Central on Bauer Road; Clermont County Communications Center and the Medical and Social Services Building on Clermont Center Drive; and the Kahle Building at 389 Main St. in Batavia.

• Goshen Township: Goshen Police Department on Walnut Street.

• Miami Township: Miami Township Hall, 5900 McPicken Drive.

• Monroe Township: Monroe Township Hall on Ohio 222 and at the Monroe Township Fire Department on Laurel-Lindale Road.

• Owensville/Stonelick Township: Pattison Park on U.S. 50.

• East Fork State Park: North side at the campgrounds off Old Ohio 32, and south side at the park headquarters off Ohio 125.
