Category: Community News
EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio – The numbers are in for this year’s Earth Day collection of household hazardous wastes and old electronics at Heritage Thermal Services (HTS). During the four-hour free event, HTS employees unloaded and packed for proper disposal or recycling 19.8 tons of wastes that could have been poured down the drain or tossed in the trash. This year’s volume brings the total amount collected since the program began in 1997 to 248.8
During the collection, HTS awarded $7,450 to 16 non-profit and school groups to help fund their respective environmental projects. Since the
facility started the environmental grant program in 1998, local non-profits have received a total of $101,200.
HTS thanks the many organizations for helping make the drop-off, known as citySweep, possible. They are: the City of East Liverpool, the East Liverpool Police Department, Southern Columbiana County Regional Chamber of Commerce, Tim Hortons, Tri-State Ford, East Liverpool City Hospital, Carroll-Columbiana-Harrison Environmental Group, The Review, WTOV-9 TV and Pickle Classic Hits radio station.
