Batavia Township will be holding their annual Clean Up Days but have added a new twist to this year’s event. The event will be held at the Service department at 2401 Old State Route 32 and also the Community Center 1535 Clough Pike on June 6th and 7th from 8am-7pm and June 8th from 8am to 5pm.
This year the residents of the Township will have the ability to recycle some of their items instead of throwing them away. All appliances, even those with Freon, can be dropped off for free. The Freon will be properly removed and the metal from the appliance will be recycled and will not end up in a landfill. Also we now will accept 8 tires per resident free of charge which will be completely recycled and not taken to a landfill. We also will offer shredding of all your paper documents on Thursday June 6th and Saturday June 8th from 9 am to 12 noon.
We hope you support this event and its new direction. Please contact Ken Embry, Township Service Director with any questions at 513-732-1363. CLICK HERE to download a flyer about the event.
