September 26, 2014 - Policy Committee Meeting
Every five years, solid waste districts give their solid waste management plans a facelift, updating data and strategies for meeting state goals.
The Ohio EPA has reviewed the draft plan and provided comments for improvement. Following minor revisions to clarify programs, the Policy Committee approved the draft plan on August 8.
The draft plan is now available for a 30-day public review at libraries in the city of Coshocton, Newark, Lancaster and New Lexington beginning in August.
It is also posted here for public review. Click the link below to read the entire draft plan.
The District will encourage, but not mandate, curbside recycling in communities that can economically support it.
The District will continue to offer the drop-off recycling program in all four counties.
The District will implement education programs to encourage people to use the recycling opportunities available.
The District will support enforcement of laws and regulations preventing litter and open dumping.
The District will increase fees for out-of-district waste and out-of-state waste, but there will be no increase on in-district waste. Residents and businesses should NOT see an increase in their trash bills due to this update.
