This survey is being conducted as a result of a Rootstown Township / Portage County curbside recycling contract expiring at the end of 2021.
The township is trying reach a consensus of Rootstown residents on providing recycling in our township.
Per the Ohio Revised Code, providing recycling is not an issue that can be put on the ballot.
The township contacted independent recycling companies and either got no response or that they do not service our area.
Rootstown collected 721 tons from recycling bins in 2020 with 81% being recycled and 19% being unrecyclable materials or contaminated and sent to the landfill.
