Coshocton Co. recycling considers events for hard-to-dispose-of items

COSHOCTON − Coshocton County Litter Prevention and Recycling is exploring offering recycle days for items local residents might be hard-pressed to dispose of otherwise.

Alex Nelson, program director and education specialist, is working with recycling companies and local officials to establish events. She’s targeting late August at the Coshocton County Fairgrounds. One event will be for scrap tires and another will be for appliances and electronics and document shredding.

Nelson doesn’t believe a shredding days has ever been offered locally. The last time the county had a scrap tire drive was 2019 with about 1,500 tired collected. Boy Scout Troop 403 holds an electronics and appliances collection during the Coshocton Clean Up Day every April. However, Nelson feels there is a need for a second annual drive.
