Nonprofit wants to recycle Ohio’s medical marijuana waste

Read the full story in the Columbus Dispatch.

Ohio’s medical marijuana industry generates millions of dollars worth of waste that ends up in trash bins.

Now a nonprofit with links to Ohio’s medicinal cannabis industry is trying to change that through a recycling program for hard-to-recycle items like batteries.

Cannabis Can recently brought its idea to the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy, which regulates marijuana dispensaries.

The group hopes to partner with TerraCycle, a New Jersey company specializing in items that most municipal recycling programs can’t handle, such as batteries and refill cartridges for vaping pens.

But they face an uphill battle.
