Please Keep Our Recycling Drop-Offs Clean!So What CAN Be Recycled?Not all materials that say ‘recyclable’ or that display a recycling symbol are accepted by curbside or drop-offrecycling programs, and it is extremely important to find out which materials can be recycled in your community’srecycling program. When residents place contaminants in with their recyclables, they need to be removed andtransported to a landfill. High contamination rates require more staff at recycling facilities, which can result inincreased costs for residents and local governments or even the closure of a recycling drop-off site. Fortunately,there are businesses located in the District that recycle materials that are not accepted by curbside or drop-offrecycling programs (listed later in this guide).If you want to improve your recycling skills, please do NOT put the followingmaterials in with your curbside or drop-off recycling for the following reasons: Plastic Bags: Plastic bags get caught on sorting equipment at recycling facilities, causing the facilities totemporarily shut down while workers remove plastic from machinery. In addition, plastic bags have to be cleanand dry to be recycled, and collecting them in curbside or drop-off site bins with bottles and containers generallyleaves them too dirty and wet to be recycled. Styrofoam: Due to the lightweight nature of the material, Styrofoam can blow right out of recycling bins andtrucks, polluting the environment. Because it’s so light, transporting it is costly. Enough Styrofoam to fillan 18-wheeler only weighs about 100 pounds. This makes the use of recycled Styrofoam in manufacturing lesscost-effective than using new materials, so there is very little demand for it. In addition, Styrofoam foodcontainers cannot be heated to the point to kill bacteria present from food residue. Antifreeze or Motor Oil Containers: Although these containers may be a #1 or #2 plastic, recycling facilitiesdo not want these types of plastic bottles because they contain hazardous materials. Non-container glass: Non-container glass like that used to make windows, mirrors and drinking glasses isoften treated with chemicals, so these items all have different melting points. If different types of glass arerecycled together, the resulting glass will not be suitable for making new glass. Also, the equipment in a glassrecycling plant is specifically designed to handle container glass.Other common contaminants include paint cans, batteries, light bulbs, wire hangers,mattresses, furniture and the items listed under “Unacceptable Plastic Items” on page 3.Similar to the recycling drop-off sites, yard waste drop-off sites cannot acceptcertain types of materials. The following is a list of materials NOT accepted atyard waste drop-offs, and the reasons they cannot be composted: Treated wood: Resistance to rot and decay, which is incompatible with composting Wooden furniture: Often treated with preservatives or varnish/paint, which chemically contaminatescomposting and does not break down Railroad ties: Treated with creosote, a preservative that stops wood from decaying Carcasses and food waste: Materials collected at the yard waste drop-offs are sent to registeredcomposting facilities that are only authorized to accept yard waste. There are composting facilities in Ohiothat do accept carcasses and food waste, but they are not affiliated with the District’s yard waste program. Non-organic materials such as plastic bags, mattresses, drywall and other demolition material: Materialsdo not naturally decompose. Materials that do decompose may change the pH of the compost pile andslow down the rate of natural decay.4

Recycling Partnership with County Sheriff’s DepartmentThe District recognizes the importance of providing support to the Sheriff’s Departments in the tri-county area forlitter law and solid waste enforcement because crimes against the environment affect everyone. Littering attractsmore litter and decreases property values. Illegal dumps attract disease carrying pests, pollute groundwater,and can harm wildlife.To protect residents and the place we call “home,” the District provides each Sheriff’s Department with an 85,000 grant to assign a deputy to conduct litter investigations and enforce illegal dumping laws. The deputyalso works with the Community Corrections Program to arrange highway and roadway cleanups and monitortraffic routes to the landfills to make sure the routes are clear of fallen debris from trash trucks.In 2014, the Stark County Sheriff’s Department accomplished thefollowing through the District’s grant program: 342 Litter citations issued85 Litter complaints received69 Litter complaint investigations resulting in a clean-up884 Hours of litter collection completed by inmates110 Days litter collection activities occurred3,349 Miles of road cleaned5,523 Bags of littered trash collected139 Illegally dumped tires collectedStark County Litter Deputy Chane ClineIf you witness a personillegally dumping at oneof our drop-off sites orlittering, DO NOT confrontthe individual.

Community Recycling ProgramsTire Drop-off SitesThere are options for properly disposing of residents’ automotive tires. First, if purchasing new tires through a tiredealer, check and see if the dealer will dispose of the old tires. Normally the dealers charge a small fee per tire todispose of the unwanted tires. Tires are also accepted at the following locations.FacilityCity of Canton Recycling Center742 Schroyer Ave SWCantonPhone330-430-7869NotesLimit of 12 tires per year per person. On or offthe rims.
