LEGAL NOTICE

             The Policy Committee of the SouthEastern Ohio Joint Solid Waste Management District has adopted the fifth update of the approved solid waste management plan for the six-county district including Guernsey, Monroe, Morgan, Muskingum, Noble, and Washington Counties.  The fifteen-year plan includes projections of solid waste generation, recycling, reuse, and disposal capacity needs, and demonstrates that the district has access to adequate disposal capacity for these needs throughout the fifteen-year planning period through the capacity assurance agreements the district has negotiated with private disposal facility operators in Ohio, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania.  The plan does not establish disposal fees, but relies upon the contractual $2.00 per ton fee included in the capacity assurance agreements to provide adequate funding for district operations. The draft plan also explains the strategies to be used to reduce reliance on landfills and increase the District’s waste reduction rate.  These strategies and programs include: community drop-off recycling operations; public and private recycling facilities and activities; a industrial/commercial newsletter, and waste assessment program; programs for the collection of scrap appliances, computers & cathode ray tubes, scrap tires, and household hazardous waste; material market identification to increase recycling opportunities; and education, awareness.

Copies of the plan are available for inspection at the offices of the Boards of County Commissioners in each County in the District.  The Policy Committee has established a thirty-day period for receipt of written comments on the plan, commencing February 1, 2023 and ending March 3, 2023.  A public hearing on the plan will be held on March 6, 2023, at the Conference Room, Lori’s Family Restaurant located at 17020 McConnelsville Road, Caldwell, Ohio, at 1:00 p.m.  Questions concerning the comment period or the public hearing should be directed to the Executive Director, Mike Reiter, at 1-800-860-8103 or (740) 732-5493.  Written comments on the plan should be sent to the SouthEastern Ohio Joint Solid Waste Management District office at 46049 Marietta Rd., Suite 6, Caldwell, Ohio 43724.

The Policy Committee has scheduled its meeting for Monday, March 6, 2023 immediately following public hearing at Lori’s Family Restaurant, 17020 McConnelsville Road, Caldwell. 

 

The recycling trailer has been returned to the location off SR 564 at the well site near Caldwell.  However, if contamination and unacceptable items in trailer continues, it may be permanently removed.

Tire Collection dates are set for 2023.  Household Hazardous Waste Collection dates are set for 2023. 

The Board of Directors has scheduled its meeting for Monday, March 13, 2023 at 1:00 p.m. at Lori’s Family Restaurant, 17020 McConnelsville Road, Caldwell.  

***Vinyl Siding is NOT recyclable in recycling trailers.***

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.

***Storage containers are NOT recyclable in recycling trailers.***

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.

***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.
