Is Sandusky getting recycling bins downtown?
It is true, Jason. We actually just got a press release from the city of Sandusky about a ribbon cutting for the project. The kick-off event will be from noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday at Schade-Mylander Plaza. City officials and representatives from Greener Corners, the company installing the recycling bins, will be there. The bins will be accessible for people hanging out downtown so you don't have to throw your plastic or glass bottles, aluminum cans, newspapers and magazines in the trash. The program costs the city nothing. Greener Corners will pay for maintenance of the 30 recycling receptacles in the downtown and shoreline area by getting advertising sponsorships for the bins. Residents should note the bins are not for large-volume can and bottle drop-offs — so don't go gathering up the 800 old soda cans in your garage. But, if you're walking downtown and you finish off the last swig of your cola, you can drop the can or bottle in the bin and feel good about saving it from a landfill.
