E-waste collection set
Owens Community College’s Environmental Club will sponsor an “E-Waste” Collection Drive Aug. 28.
The electronics collection drive is part of a collaborative effort with Recycle It USA’s environmental program, in which electronic items are either given new life and use through a refurbishment process or recycled, with the various components being broken down and disseminated to recycle-specific organizations.
Items being collected include computers, displays, printers, keyboards and mice, scanners, projectors, document cameras, speakers, storage devices, stereo equipment, cameras and camcorders, networking hardware, cell phones, cables, video game consoles and flash drives, among other items. Televisions are not being accepted.
Electronic devices may be dropped off between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. in Parking Lot D, located between Health Technologies Hall and College Hall on Oregon Road in Perrysburg Township.
Proceeds from all cell phones collected will benefit the College’s Environmental Club. For more information, call 1-800-GO-OWENS, ext. 7583.

WSOS preschool applications
WSOS is accepting applications for preschoolers in its early childhood centers in Wood County.
The program is open to children birth to age 5. Kindergarten-age and special-needs students are also accepted. Preschool centers are located in Bowling Green, Pemberville, Perrysburg and Rossford. In addition, if it is not convenient to bring the child to the center, parents have the option of having a teacher come to their home and having their child taught there.
The options available at the WSOS centers include half-day classes and/or home visitation services four days per week, made possible through the Head Start program. Each of these centers has been awarded three-star ratings from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
The comprehensive program provides early childhood education that includes nutrition/health services for the child, and social services for the family. In addition, families who enroll in the program benefit by having access to a variety of community resources, diverse parent education programs and other social services that often assist the family to become self-sufficient.
For more information call the Bowling Green center at 419-353-7407; the Pemberville center at 419-287-4057; the Perrysburg center at 419-874-4644 or the Rossford center at 419-661-0502.
