Greenstar's Poland, Ohio facility handles all residential commingled recycling generated in Mahoning County at the curbside and most of the materials collected from the community recycling drop-off sites. Thousands of tons of paper, cardboard, metal cans, glass bottles, and plastic containers will be received and prepared for use in manufacturing of new products.
Greenstar invested $2.1 million to develop the recycling center. The investment was supported by a $250,000 matching grant by the Ohio Division of Recycling and Litter Prevention through a Market Development Grant administered by the Mahoning County Green Team. The proceeds were used to fund new recycling equipment.
