What Happens To Your Recycling? Why prohibited items can not be recycled.

Township Recycling Centers   

    Residents have convenient recycle collection centers at the Bath Elementary School and the Herberich School parking lots. These centrally located collection areas allow schools, businesses, and residents with no curbside recycling the opportunity to recycle items.
The township had received grants from Summit County ReWorks for three years. This money was saved for the specific purpose of providing a recycling center. No tax or school levy money was used for this project. Then with cooperation from the Revere and Copley/Fairlawn schools, these locations were chosen.
Residents should respect the safety and educational atmosphere of schools. Please use this recycling center outside of school hours only.
