Ross County Litter Control & Recycling provides new information for residents
CHILLICOTHE – Effective immediately and until further notice the Ross, Pickaway, Highland, Fayette, (RPHF) Joint Solid Waste Management District has issued new guidelines for drop-off sites and recycling to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Now, any person who has or has had a fever of 100.1 or above in the past two weeks, any person who has/had an immediate family member or member of the same household with a fever during this period, any person who exhibits a fever in the future and any person has an immediate family member or member of the same household that develops a fever in the future are asked to not place recyclables in the community drop off recycling dumpsters operated by the RPHF district or any others throughout Ohio.
Community members who meet the following criteria are asked to dispose of recyclables with the regular trash.
District Director for RPHF Solid Waste Management District Erica Tucker says that these measures are put in place to prevent employees and those of the companies that sort and market recyclables from being infected. The management of recyclables requires direct contact with the recyclables by our staff and the employees of the companies that sort the materials and we are making this request to protect their health.
For more information, visit the district website at www.rphfsolidwastedistrict.com or the district’s Facebook page. Tucker can also be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This notice is only for community members who use the community drop off recycling dumpsters operated by RPHF. The city of Chillicothe has no changes to their recycling program.
