Perrysburg partners with city, CES for year-end recycling

PERRYSBURG – Perrysburg School District is planning its yearend recycling efforts in partnership with The
City of Perrysburg, Community Employment Services of Wood Lane (CES) and Bowling Green Recycling Center.

The City of Perrysburg is loaning the district more than 40 rolling curbside-style bins for the large
amount of recyclable paper the district amasses during student locker cleanout and teacher room
cleanouts at the end of the year. Community Employment Services of Wood Lane is providing drop-off and
pick-up services for the bins and Bowling Green Recycling Center will be the processing center for all
collected materials.
The district’s recycling team has worked closely with Community Employment Services of Wood Lane, Bowling
Green Recycling Center and the City of Perrysburg since 2008, when Perrysburg Schools renewed its
commitment to recycling throughout the district. CES has a regular route where they stop at each of the
district’s buildings and pick up plastic, cans and paper. The district also utilizes Allied Waste
Services for paper and cardboard recycling.
Vic Gable, employment services coordinator with the Wood County Board of DD, has been the guiding voice
in helping the district coordinate its recycling efforts with CES, the City of Perrysburg and Bowling
Green Recycling.
"We are so happy with the support we’ve received from Community Employment Services of Wood Lane and
the City of Perrysburg," explained Thomas L. Hosler, superintendent. "The knowledge Vic Gable
at CES and Judy Hagen at the city have brought to the table has made this process seamless as we’ve
continued to ramp up our recycling efforts over the years."
