Thursday, April 18, 2013 - 5:32 AM

Recycling efforts in Putnam County have been given a shot in the arm. The Lima News reports a $150,000 grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources will be used to buy a new baler, safety equipment for trash sorters and an air purifier for the recycling skid steer.

Along with the new equipment, there will be changes to the county's recycling program. An additional recycling bin will be put in the Ottawa Walmart parking lot. Recycling coordinator Ashley Siefker tells the newspaper people need to sort their recylclables properly, or they may have to go to a "pay-as-you-go" system.
