From the Putnam County OH Solid Waste District Facebook page dated May 26th
Recycling is starting new hours this week. At this time the Ottawa location is open Monday-Friday from 9am-5pm and closed on holidays. We will also be trying to add a couple Saturdays if we can get the personnel to help with those days. We are also still looking to hire a part-time driver with a Class B CDL for 15-25 hours a week. For more information, please contact our office at 419-523-3656. Thank you!
In a response to a complaint about the limited hours:
We apologize for the inconvenience. Right now we are struggling to keep people working the hours we are open already. This is all a change for everyone. We never manned them before but we paid a lot of money to take resident’s unacceptable material and trash to the landfill that kept getting put in the recycling bins. Now we have to pay someone to monitor them instead and we are doing what we can right now.
