PITTSBURGH — Seven scrapyards in Toledo, Ohio, have been recognized by local government for being stewards of the environment.

OmniSource Corp., R&M Recycling Inc., Rada & Sons Enterprises LLC, Cherry Picked Auto Parts, Nationwide Auto Parts & Recycling Inc., Northtown Auto Parts and Westwood Auto Parts have been commended by the City of Toledo and Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments for proactively protecting the Ottawa River watershed.

"The participation of these private businesses to reduce contamination of the Ottawa River and protect the waterway shows a commitment to our local environment and a commitment to be a good citizen in this community," Mayor Michael P. Bell said in a statement.

After cleaning and dredging efforts were completed in 2011, the city approached a dozen businesses to establish stormwater management practices, and the seven were cited for meeting the criteria for establishing retention ponds and using other methods to reduce the risk of contamination.
