New recycling program starts in Perrysburg
PERRYSBURG - The Office of Litter Prevention and Recycling has started a new program in honor of America Recycles Day.
Residents can recycle CDs, DVDs, video game cartridges, cassettes and VHS tapes by visiting a drop-off kiosk at the Department of Public Service, 11980 Roachton Road.
Residents are encouraged to recycle these items Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., excluding holidays. The city is partnering with ReCellOne to accept such items at no cost to residents or the city.
ReCellOne guarantees complete physical destruction of all items. Their data destruction services exceed the Department of Defense standards and are in complete compliance with state and federal compliance measures. A certificate of destruction is issued to the city for all items recycled.
Residents can be assured that all personal information is securely destroyed.

Willard soil removal continues
WILLARD, Ohio (AP) — Cleanup crews are working to remove soil impacted after a Tuesday train derailment in northern Ohio damaged a railcar that leaked flammable liquid and forced the evacuation of hundreds of homes.
CSX Corp. spokesman Gary Sease said 20 to 25 homes remained unoccupied Friday evening and the soil removal will continue today. He said fire officials will determine when those families can return home.
Sease said environmental teams have been monitoring the air and determined it safe for those who have already been allowed to return homes.
The railcar damaged in the derailment in Willard leaked about half of its 26,000 gallons of styrene monomer, which is used to make plastic and rubber products.
