Republic Services has worked with The Lucas County Solid Waste Management District and Keep Toledo/Lucas County Beautiful to coordinate a recycling effort for empty plastic water bottles.
Beginning with Monday’s recycling collection routes, Republic will collect recycling overflow due to the increased need for water bottles. Your standard recycling cart/bin should be filled first. Then, residents are asked to place empty plastic water bottles in plastic bags and place them on the curb, next to your recycling cart/bin. These bags should be placed next to your recycling container, not your trash container. Republic will collect the bags during your normal recycling collection day.
This applies to residents throughout metro Toledo who are serviced by Republic Services, including Toledo, Sylvania, Maumee, Swanton and Monclova Township. It also applies to subscription customers in Perrysburg Township, Sylvania Township, Springfield Township, Washington Township and Monroe County, Mich.
