Curbside recycling coming to Ashtabula, Conneaut

(Continued)

CONNEAUT —

“Drop-off recycling is not sustainable,” she said. “We’ve been losing money on it for years and years.”

The bins would remain in the cities, Switzer said.

Curbside recycling is already in place in Geneva, officials said.

In other business, City Manager Tim Eggleston said state lawmakers are mulling a change in how Ohio’s Development Services Agency  distributes community development block grant funding. On the table is a proposal that would require a community to have a population of least 15,000 to receive funding directly. Otherwise communities would have to compete with like-sized entities for money that would be distributed by county commissioners.
