The Ross, Pickaway, Highland and Fayette Solid Waste District (RPHF Solid Waste District) has completed the new Fayette County Recycling Center project.
The recycling project is located at 1580 Robinson Road in Washington C.H. Thanks to the Ohio EPA, the Fayette County Commissioners and the Fayette County Engineer, residents of Fayette County will now be granted access to a secure location to recycle.
The site now has cameras for monitoring illegal dumping and ensuring proper recycling. Residents may only access the site with an active key fob pass that they can obtain for free by signing up online or calling the district office.
The recycling center will be open seven days a week from 5 a.m.-10 p.m. beginning on Earth Day — Thursday, April 22.
Residents of Fayette County that want to participate in recycling should contact the RPHF Solid Waste District. To contact the district, fill out an online form at www.RPHFSolidWasteDistrict.com or call the district office at 740-420-5452.
