The county recycling and litter program is working on making it easier for area residents to keep the community clean. They are currently working on a grant that they updated the Muskingum County Commissioners on earlier today.
The grant is to help finance new equipment and, a larger bailer is going to be purchased as well as new trailers for drop-off sites in the area. Two new drop-off trailers are in the works because of the large amount of recyclables being brought in. The Dresden area and the New Concord area may be getting a couple trailers for recyclables. Area schools are also taking part in the effort, there are recycling bins in hallways and on school grounds promoting reduce, reuse and recycle.
