Akron City’s Recycling Program

November 27, 2018

Monday’s Green/Sustainability committee meeting discussed the city’s recycling. Items recycled should not be placed in plastic bags. Currently, the city’s recycling program does not accept plastic bags, glass or scrap metal. Putting contaminated items that cannot be recycled in the city’s program or recyclable items that are not rinsed puts a strain on the city’s recycling facility and could render the items unusable.
