WJER’s new podcast Talkin’ Trash!

| May 16, 2024

Join Hannah Hartman & Rachel Rothacher for WJER’s new podcast “Talkin’ Trash!” where they discuss how to recycle properly in Tuscarawas County.

We know things can get pretty confusing, especially as rules and regulations change over time, so we’re here to offer helpful information for those who are trying to do the right thing. On the debut episode of “Talkin’ Trash!” they will discuss the five basics of what can be recycled locally, the “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” hierarchy…plus a few more R’s, what a MRF is, what kind of recyclables “the markets” want, where glass goes and what it becomes, why we separate our recycling, the definition of “recyclable,” how to create a car kit, and the surprising findings of a recent Ohio Waste Characterization Study.

You can watch video of the “Talkin’ Trash!” podcast now by visiting the “Videos” page at, or tune in this Saturday after the 8:00am news or this Sunday after the 10:00am news to hear audio of the podcast right here on WJER. The “Talkin’ Trash!” podcast is sponsored by Kimble—Recycling and Disposal Done Right.
