Appliance, Electronic, Tire, and Household Hazardous Waste Collection events WILL be held in 2021.  However, no dates have been confirmed at this time.  Hoping to schedule Appliance collection in April and May, HHW collection in July, Electronics collection third quarter, and Tire collection in September and October.

Household paints are not considered hazardous waste.  Commercially available paint hardeners, cat litter, oil-dry, or sawdust may be added to left-over paint to solidify the unused product to the point that it has no free liquid. The lid may also be left off to speed up the drying process. Once dried it may be disposed of with your regular trash.

The District’s recycling trailers are operating as scheduled.  If you or anyone in your family has a fever or Covid-19 symptoms, please discard your recycling in your garbage.  DO NOT place any medical waste or protective gear in the recycling trailers, these items are not recyclable and need to be discarded in your garbage.

The recycling trailer will be placed back in Chesterhill when the construction project is completed.

***DO NOT PLACE ANY PLASTIC BAGS IN RECYCLING.***

THIS INCLUDES TRASH BAGS, SHOPPING BAGS, AND FEED BAGS

Empty all plastic bags and dispose of bags properly (which is not in trailers).

(Shredded paper needs to be and may be placed in clear or transparent bags – DO NOT place loose shredded paper in trailers. Newspaper, catalogs, and magazines may be bundled with string or twine or placed in paper bags.)

***KIDS PLASTIC TOYS ARE NOT RECYCLABLE***

The only items accepted at recycling sites (trailers/building): cardboard; paperboard; newspaper; magazines; catalogs; office paper; junk mail; #1 & #2 plastics; aluminum, steel , and tin cans; clear, brown, & green glass

***PAPER TOWELS AND TISSUES ARE NOT RECYCLABLE***

*****Do NOT place garbage or other non-recyclable items in recycling trailers.*****

*****Do NOT place items collected at special collection events in the recycling trailers.*****

***IF SITES CONTINUE TO BE ABUSED, THE SITE WILL BE REMOVED.***

We do understand that many plastic bags are #2 and are considered recyclable.  However, many recycling centers are no longer accepting the plastic bags.  These bags become entangled around wheels and gears of equipment causing much downtime at the centers removing the plastic so equipment can operate properly.

Serving 6 Counties in SouthEastern Ohio

The SouthEastern Ohio Joint Solid Waste Management District was formed on March 1, 1989 by Guernsey, Monroe, Morgan, Muskingum, Noble, and Washington counties in compliance with Substitute Ohio House Bill 592 which required that counties form solid waste management districts to provide for the reduction of solid waste being disposed of in Ohio landfills, and to provide the District’s residents and businesses with guaranteed solid waste disposal capacity for ten-year to fifteen-year periods. The District also provides programs for the recovery of common recyclables from the home as well as special wastes such as scrap tires, household appliances, electronics, and household hazardous wastes through a variety of private sector and governmental contractors.
