Recycling wastes you have stored at home like your used oil, antifreeze, pesticides, fluorescent bulbs, batteries, oil-based paint and more keeps your home and Summit County tidy and healthy.
Recycling these Household Hazardous Wastes (HHW) also conserves resources and energy that would be expended in the production of more products. Proper disposal prevents pollution that could endanger human health and the environment.
Think about the hazardous waste or obsolete cleaning chemicals and pesticides gathering dust in your garage, hidden in the corner of your basement or lurking under the sink. They can't go in your curbside trash container so what can you responsibly do with them to get them out of your home?
ReWorks provides Summit County residents with a safe and convenient option. They re-open for summertime service Thursday, June 2, 2016. Check out their website for the specific day and time they are open the rest of the summer to accept and recycle your household hazardous waste. Here's a list of waste they accept.
Unfortunately, ReWorks is only open to homeowners and renters who are residents of Summit County. If you're a business, commercial enterprise or non-profit, ReWorks will not be able to accept your waste; however, you can contact Rice Oil & Environmental and we can help.
We leave you now at another great northeast Ohio destination....Taco Tontos. After you recycle your household hazardous waste and wash your hands real well, head over to Kent and treat yourself to Taco Tontos. This place is a locally owned and operated, one-of-a-kind eatery offering fresh, hand-made, Mexican cuisine that is unlike any other. We love their huge, baked burritos!
