Take a look into your garbage or recycle bins — to most, empty glass bottles or an overused box-spring mattress might seem like junk, but one shop owner has made a living out of repurposing what others might throw away.
Michele Shicora, owner of Relics in downtown Wapakoneta, described repurposing as turning “trash to treasure.”
“Something that someone would think was junk and turning it into something funky and cool,” Shicora said.
For Wapakoneta residents looking to participate in the city’s curbside recycling program, there are a few rules that need to be followed to insure that recyclable materials can be processed properly.
The first thing to remember is what can be placed in the red recycling bin and what cannot.
Green, brown and clear glass bottles and jars, aluminum cans, steel or tin cans, No. 1 plastic containers and No. 2 plastic containers are all acceptable items that can be recycled.
