Today is America Recycles Day, but recycling is an activity many practice daily. Did you know that nearly 80 percent of your trash is recyclable or that household hazardous waste (HHW) such as paint, oil, batteries and pesticides shouldn't be placed in the trash?
Johnson County has its own HHW facility which also recycles paint. The facility is run by the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment. Their website provides tons of valuable information such as recycling guidelines for plastic film, establishing a recycling at work or in the classroom program, Trashology 101 and a list of recycling centers, as well as much more.
