Bottle It Up! Local Berea Group Educates on Creative Ways to Recycle


Berea has recently halted curbside recycling for certain items due to lack of space at recycling facilities.

Bag It Berea is a local group that aims to raise awareness and provide education on recycling. One method of recycling that has recently caught on is making eco bricks: bricks made by stuffing single use plastic bottles with other plastic items such as shopping bags.

The bricks can then be used for things such as benches and can even be used to make houses with items that normally would not be recyclable.
