Rootstown Recycling Survey

Distributed by Rootstown Township Trustees

This survey is being conducted as a result of a Rootstown Township / Portage County curbside recycling contract expiring at the end of 2021.

The township is trying reach a consensus of Rootstown residents on providing recycling in our township.

Per the Ohio Revised Code, providing recycling is not an issue that can be put on the ballot.

The township contacted independent recycling companies and either got no response or that they do not service our area.

We decided to distribute this flyer to every household this way as not everyone accesses the township website (, subscribes to the Record-Courier newspaper, or uses social media.

Rootstown collected 721 tons from recycling bins in 2020 with 81% being recycled and 19% being unrecyclable materials or contaminated and sent to the landfill.

The survey can be done:

Please help us help you by responding only once.

Survey deadline is Friday, November 26, 2021

  1. Do you recycle?
  2. Starting January 1, 2022, County Recycling will provide county-wide residential curbside recycling every other week at $5.50 per month. This is not negotiable. There is no individual opt-out. There will be no alternate drop-off places. Do you accept this?
