Mahoning County Green Team facing budget crunch

YOUNGSTOWN — The Mahoning County Recycling Division is facing a budget crunch driven by the success of the recycling it promotes, its assistant director says.

The division is funded almost entirely by fees paid for dumping waste in the county’s landfills, and that revenue is declining as more materials are reused and recycled and less waste is dumped in landfills, explained Mari Wren Petrony, assistant director of the recycling division, which is also known as The Green Team.

“As people become more aware of the effects on the earth of garbage, of pollution, etc., people become more interested,” in reuse and recycling of items they no longer need and in reduction of landfill-bound garbage, she said at today’s commissioners’ meeting.
