HISTORY

In 1999, the District, in partnership with the Ohio Division of Civilian Conservation, established a recycling and processing center at the Barney Quilter Civilian Conservation Camp.  The District oversaw the collection, processing, and marketing of the recyclable materials and contracted with the Division for labor.  In 2003, the WSOS Community Action Commission, Inc. took over management and operation of the Camp and worked with the District by providing labor at the recycling and processing center.  In early 2008, the center moved to being fully operated by District staff.
