On August 15th, the Board of Wood County Commissioners approved the Solid Waste Management District (SWMD) to move forward with the pilot study for the permanent recycling locations after positive feedback from the SWMD Policy Committee.
Discussions have begun with the four proposed pilot sites which are the Village of Pemberville, Village of
Tontogany, Portage Township and Village of Custar/Milton Township.
Details regarding the pilot will be worked out during the coming months with the expected start to be sometime in 2018.
The duration of this study is expected to be six to twelve months depending on the location.
The remaining satellite locations and times will be unchanged during the pilot study.
These locations are Bloomdale, Grand Rapids, Hoytville/Jackson Twp., Jerry City/Cygnet, North Baltimore, Perry Township, Perrysburg Township, Village of Portage, Rudolph, Stony Ridge and Weston.
The existing 24/7 sites managed by the Bowling Green Recycling Center and NAT will also be unchanged.
The SWMD will update the communities with the progress and results of the pilot study through our quarterly electronic newsletter.
After the pilot study has been completed, the SWMD will reach back out to the Policy Committee and the Commissioners to provide a full report and discuss the next steps.
