A recent recycling event in Ottawa was a big success. The Putnam County Sentinel reports more than 30,000 pounds of recyclable material was taken in over three hours on September 26. There were more than 300 car-loads of materials brought to the Putnam County Educational Service Center.
Ashley Siefker is Putnam County’s Community Recycling Coordinator. She told the newspaper the event cost more that $10,000 to coordinate, but the costs were covered by donations. The price included the cost to recycle electronics, oil, and batteries.
