The District is in the process of updating our solid waste plan. Currently, the plan is in the hands of our four counties, townships and municipalities for consideration. They have 90 days to approve or disapprove of the plan.
The biggest change to this plan is directing where waste generated in our four counties may be disposed. If facilities outside the district wish to receive our waste, they may apply for a waiver that will involve payment of a waiver fee. This is designed to stop the loss of revenue sustained when haulers take our waste to other solid waste districts for disposal, thereby avoiding our disposal fee.
We are pleased that a major project from the current solid waste plan is nearing completion. Almost $2 million was invested in the Fairfield and Perry County recycling centers that process recyclables from the countywide dropoff programs. Having two local independent processing centers ensures that a monopoly in service provision doesn't occur and raise costs beyond our budget. Both centers have new sorting equipment that will help them process materials better and faster, increasing their capacity for helping Licking and Coshocton Counties with their materials.
