Perry County Waste Reduction and Recycling Eco-Tips | December 2023

80% of toys end up in landfills even if they are still in good condition. 90% of toys made in the US are made from plastic. Toys are often made of plastic that can’t be recycled in Perry County. When getting rid of toys, donate to secondhand stores, kids in your life, neighbors, or those in need.
