Don’t put your pet poop in the compost?

 

Many people think you can put your pet waste in the compost. This is definitely a no no! – and your pet’s waste should be disposed of correctly. Pollution is an ongoing issue, but one pollutant – pet waste – that transmits bacteria and parasites into our waterways, potentially effecting our health, might be overlooked. Experts say your pet’s waste can create a problem when it is not disposed of properly. So when you are picking up after your pet, please be considerate. Place it in a plastic bag and dispose of it with your garbage.

Benefit of Recycling

Recycling is an important way for individuals and businesses to reduce the waste they generate and reduce the negative impact of that waste. Because recycling is big business in Ohio, every time you recycle, it also supports the many companies and employees doing this important work.

Recycling conserves our natural resources, saves landfill space, conserves energy, and reduces water pollution, air pollution and the green house gas emissions that cause global warming.

Together, Reducing, Reusing, Recycling and buying Recycled products make up a comprehensive waste and resource reduction strategy that benefits our natural world and our economy.
