Program makes return

Lawrence County got some good news this week with the announcement of the resumption of the recycling program through the Lawrence-Scioto Solid Waste Management District.

This follows a several month layoff due to contract issues.

For the most part, the program will be the same, except sites at Walmart/Sam’s Club in Burlington and Chesapeake Elementary School, Ironton Middle School and Ohio University Southern in Hanging Rock were cut.

The updated list of recycling sites includes:

• Foodfair, Proctorville.

• Paul Porter Park, Coal Grove.

• Lawrence County Fairgrounds, Rome Township..

• Kroger, Proctorville.

• Ohio University Southern, Ironton.

• Ironton City Center.

• Wayne National Forest, 6518 State Route 93, Pedro.

• Rome Township Trustees Building.

• Lawrence County Educational Service Center, Ironton.

• Foodfair, South Point.

• Lawrence County Municipal Court, Chesapeake.

• Burlington-Fayette Volunteer Fire Department, Burlington.

We encourage everyone to do their part and take advantage of the restart of this program.
