Freezers, Refrigerators, and A/C Units
Rush County residents may bring freezers, refrigerators, air conditioning units, and other products containing refrigerant gasses to the Clean Green Rush Tox-Away Center for recycling. Since this is a new service, there is no charge; however it is only available from 8 a.m. to noon on the first Saturday of each month. No longer will residents have to wait until a special spring or fall collection of proper disposal. Clean Green Rush continues its partnership with the City of Rushville in operating the Tox-Away Center at Smiley Avenue. Street Department employee, Bill Emerson is licensed to remove and recycle the refrigerants in an environmentally approved process.
Still Taking Electronics for Recycling
Another partner for helping to keep Rush County Clean and Green is Shares, Inc. Their truck stops each month and collects electronics (anything with a circuit board) dropped off at the Tox-Away Center on the first Saturday morning of every month. All electronics will be accepted at no cost.
