MANSFIELD, Ohio – March 22, 2016 – The Richland County Regional Solid Waste Management Authority (RCRSWMA) and Rumpke are partnering to keep county roadways litter-free.
RCRSWMA’s Roadside Litter Program works to clean up trash along Richland County roadways, ranging from general litter to larger issues of illegal open dumping.
“The program continues to play a significant role in keeping Richland County clean and litter-free,” said Kenneth Bender, RCRSWMA executive director.
Rumpke will contribute $15,000 worth of disposal services at the Richland County Transfer Station for the Roadside Litter Program in 2016. Rumpke has provided this donation since 2010.
“Rumpke is committed to protecting the environment and helping our neighbors maintain the community we call home,” said Alvie Green, Rumpke landfill manager. “We are proud to support the District in their effort to keep Richland County beautiful.”
The 20th Annual Earth Stewardship Kick-off and press conference will be held on Thursday, March 31 at 11 a.m. at the gazebo in Mansfield’s Central Park, located at Park Avenue West and Park Street. Mayor Tim Theaker and Richland County Commissioners will speak about earth stewardship and litter control at the event. A litter cleanup of the surrounding area and park will follow the ceremony.
Citizens can join the effort by volunteering to help with the cleanup and by properly disposing or recycling all unwanted items. Select volunteers will be recognized at the Earth Stewardship Recognition event on July 8, 2016 at 11:30 a.m. in Mansfield’s Central Park.
