The city of Akron, the Downtown Akron Partnership, and many downtown businesses are making it easy for the downtown community to recycle. Any recyclable material can be placed in over the 200 containers to be located in the downtown area. There will be recycling containers from Lock 3 to Musica, along parade routes, in parking decks, and for commercial customers.
If you want ideas on how to recycle with minimal effort or how you can lessen your ecological footprint, Business and Government has some great books with simple ideas:
