Recycling Program Begins at Township Parks
Residents visiting the DiVirgilio Sports Complex should expect to see cleaner public parks this fall thanks to a significant grant made possible by Dr. Pepper Snapple Group in collaboration with Keep America Beautiful. The Dr. Pepper Snapple Group/Keep America Beautiful Park Recycling Bin grant program provides funding for 900 new recycling bins in public parks across the country in 2017, making recycling more accessible for Americans enjoying the outdoors.
Rostraver Township began residential curbside recycling in 2009.
In 2016, Rostraver Township began annual electronic recycling. Now in 2017, Rostraver Township will begin recycling at our locally owned public parks. This grant has enabled Rostraver Township is expanding its recycling efforts.
The DiVirgilio Sports Complex will serve as a pilot recycling program to see if the Township should include recycling bins at the other five township owned recreational parks/facilities and the Rostraver Public Library and Rostraver Township Historical Society.
