MORAINE, Ohio (WDTN) -
One step at a time Taylor Park has taken on a new shape. It's one of the oldest parks in Moraine
but now has a fresh look and feel.
Barbara Asberry, Montgomery County Solid Waste District says, "It's a pretty broad multifaceted program and our goal is to promote recycling in the county and the use of recycled content products."
Last year Moraine received a recycling grant from the Montgomery county Solid Waste District. The main goal around Curby's Cardinal Nest is for kids to have fun all while learning at the same time.
Julie Hoffman with the City of Moraine says, "We wanted something that benefited the community and with this grant it gave us an opportunity to show our kids that use this playground hey when you recycle these are where your things are going."
It took the moraine streets and park department about three days to put the playground up. it's estimated it is made of about 60 thousand milk jugs and it's just as durable and even stronger than wood. Everything surrounding the main playground like the benches, trash bins, and mulch are made from one hundred percent recyclable
The grant is open to any solid waste district member and even non profits or schools. If a non profit or school wishes to apply they need a letter of approval from either the city or town they reside in.
"It's done on a 70 30 spilt so basically whatever your project is you can request 70 percent of that budget - you have to have a 30 percent match because we want you to have some investment," Barabara Asberry said.
