Mentor Marsh Groundbreaking July 7, 2022

Assistant Director Laura Factor was on the site of Mentor Marsh to break ground for cleanup at this site. Ohio EPA is working with an environmental contractor to remediate the legacy contamination at the Mentor Marsh. The site, known as the Osborne Salt Fill, has been a source of chlorides that have impacted the marsh and caused water quality issues and altered natural vegetation. The goal of this project is to remove material and return the site to a stable, more natural condition. This project is a result of work by Ohio EPA, the City of Mentor, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, Lake County Health Department, and many others.

Ohio EPA's Curbside Recycling Contamination Reduction Pilot Project

In 2019, Ohio EPA awarded The Recycling Partnership nearly $320,000 to develop and create an anti-contamination education and outreach campaign aimed at improving the quality of curbside recycling that could be replicated throughout the state. This pilot project was a collaborative effort between six Ohio communities, their local solid waste districts, and recyclers. The final product of this nearly three-year project is a new curbside recycling contamination reduction kit designed to provide steps, tools, and resources to help you improve the quality of your community curbside recycling program.
