A public meeting was held on Wednesday night to discuss the possibility of curbside recycling in the Village of Waverly and give residents an opportunity to ask questions and express their opinions on the subject.

The meeting, which was held at the John Glenn Activity Center in Bristol Village, included a presentation by Nick Rupert, municipal representative for Rumpke, and Daphne Mosely, of Pike County Solid Waste and Recycling.

If implemented in Waverly, residents would go from twice-a-week trash pickup to one-day-a week trash pickup and one-day-a-week recycling pickup. Rupert explained that Rumpke uses single-stream recycling, which means that the recyclables are mixed together and do not have to be sorted by the customer.
