The Ottawa County Visitors Bureau (Lake Erie Shores & Islands West) is pleased to announce the receipt of a grant of $1,475 from the Ottawa, Seneca, Sandusky County Joint Solid Waste Management District.
The funds were combined with an equal amount from the Visitors Bureau’s budget to purchase two picnic tables and two trash/recycling containers for placement outside the Lake Erie Islands Regional Welcome Center. The items were purchased locally and are constructed from boards made of at least 90% recycled material.
The tables are a popular addition to the Welcome Center as a place for families to enjoy a snack or guests to check up on their email using the free Wi-Fi that extends outside the building. The heavy-duty trash/recycling containers help solve the problem of wind blowing over lighter containers that were previously used.
