The Ohio General Assembly established the Solid Waste Management Districts of Ohio in 1989, and required each county to belong to one. Our District was set up to include the whole of Lorain County, plus all of the city of Vermilion. The responsibilities and duties of each District fall into two broad categories:
- To prepare and maintain a comprehensive Solid Waste Management Plan, and measure progress toward its goals by collecting detailed statistics on recycling and solid waste disposal.
Thanks for visiting, and be sure to check back frequently for new information and features!
- To promote recycling, reuse, and reduction of solid waste through educational and informational programs, support of recycling businesses and organizations, and the direct operation or support of actual collection events and programs.
