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
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
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
