Did you know that on April 8, 2024 Morrow County will be in the path of a TOTAL solar eclipse?
Morrow County is expecting a surge of visitors near the I71 interchange and along State Routes 42, 61 and 95. With the increased traffic (experts say to expect a Superbowl size crowd of 70,000 to 100,000 people), there is the potential for litter. Morrow County Recycling is proposing a county wide trash bash litter clean up after the passing of the eclipse.
To help with this effort, they are seeking signatures and intent from local businesses and residents to help clean-up the area. With enough potential interest, they can apply for a grant for the April 2024 event that will aid in these efforts.
To manage the District’s current and long term solid waste disposal needs in an environmentally responsible and cost effective manner while reducing reliance on landfills by implementing waste reduction, reuse, and recycling strategies.
