There are nine recycling drop-off locations and a transfer station available to residents of Adams County. The four new school recycling locations were installed with the aid of a grant received from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. These locations provide an opportunity for residents to dispose of waste properly and preserve the natural beauty of Adams County. Recycling reduces the amount of generated waste and ultimately the cost of waste disposal for residents.
