Discarded trash in our communities and along our roadways is ugly and unwanted. It can also be costly in time and maintenance of equipment for township and county road crews when they are working, or mowing along our roadways. Litter is also a hazard for animals in their natural habitats.
In an effort to reduce those costs and the danger of unsightly litter, local agencies are cooperating together to solve the problem. The OSS Solid Waste District contracts with the county Juvenile Courts in Ottawa, Sandusky and Seneca Counties for supervision of a Litter Crew to clean District roadways. Weather permitting; thousands of pounds of debris are being removed from township and county thoroughfares during the course of a year.
