Solid Waste Plan

The District prepares a 15-year Solid Waste Management Plan that sets out goals and programs for the district. The plan is updated every five years and the update is ratified by political entities representing at least 60 percent of the county’s population and by the county commissioners, as well as being approved by Ohio EPA. The current Solid Waste Management Plan for the years 2019-2033 can be found here.
