Ottawa-Sandusky-Seneca Solid Waste District started a rural, drop-off recycling program last year which doesn't require material to be separated or scheduled to be followed.
Since the effort began Oct. 1, 137 8-yard containers have been placed at 41 sites in the three counties. In Seneca County, residents may find containers in at township offices in Adams, Big Spring, Bloom, Clinton, Eden, Hopewell, Jackson, Liberty, Loudon, Pleasant, Reed, Scipio and Thompson, as well as a site for the village of Attica and Venice Township and Clinton Township fire station 2.
Residents can drop off recyclable materials seven days a week during daylight hours, and materials no longer need to be separated. Guidelines can be found at the collection points.
