Deerfield Township’s e-waste recycling event is a success

WARREN COUNTY (DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP), OH — In honor of Earth Day on April 22, Deerfield Township held its third annual E-Waste Recycling Event on April 10 at Deerfield Towne Center. The event attracted 557 cars with outdated broken electronics, such as televisions, batteries and computer equipment.

It wasn’t just a way to get residents to participate in responsible recycling practices: “This collective effort diverted a significant amount of electronic waste from landfills, promoting a more sustainable future for our community,” the council’s newsletter reads .

To complement recycling, Deerfield Township Trustees recently announced the “Hefty ReNew” program to Warren County residents after representatives from Rumpke and Warren County Solid Waste District presented this new initiative at the April trustees meeting.

The program is designed to expand curbside recycling options by accepting a wider range of plastics, Styrofoam and plastic bags. A special orange Hefty ReNew bag has been created to simplify the process.

Free starter packs are available from the municipal administration or click here for a free pack (one per household). Residents can purchase Hefty® ReNew® orange bags online or in the trash bag aisle at participating retailers. For a list of participating retailers CLICK HERE.
