Once is Not Enough-Recycle

  Glass and plastic bottles, tin cans, old newspapers and cardboard boxes now have a place to be deposited for recycling in the county. New drop-off recycling bins have been put in place in over 50 locations for residents. Materials that will be recycled include plastic bottles and jugs, metal and aluminum cans, glass bottles and jars, paper and cardboard, and cartons from milk, juice or similar products. Sanitary Engineer Amy Lyon-Galvin and her staff have been working hard over the past few months to get this program off and running. A list of all the bin locations is available HERE along with an interactive map that will help recyclers get directions to a bin near them. To read more, go to The Post staff writer Glenn Wojciak's story HERE.




Historical Society Raises Funds

The Medina County Historical Society is hoping to add a new floor of displays and educational space to the John Smart House by sealing the foundation of the more than 100-year-old home that doubles as a museum. Excavation work began Wednesday.  The  Historical Society has launched a $150,000 campaign to seal the foundation and replace the basement floor.The historical society is a nonprofit entity, and though it once received funding from Medina County, budget cuts have forced county leaders to end that funding.  To donate, visit GoFundMe or call board member Mary Jane Brewer at (330) 722-1386. Follow the progress and learn more about the Historical Society. Read more of Loren Genson's story at The Gazette
