We've put together a quick reference sheet to help you determine what is accepted in Ashland County's recycling drop-off program. If in doubt, throw it out with your normal trash.
The recycling center remains closed. Please utilize one of the fourteen drop-off locations throughout the county.
Nancy Earick, Education Specialist
The Ashland County Solid Waste District provides education and awareness opportunities throughout Ashland County.
Our educator schedules visits to school classrooms, including home schools and Christian schools, 4-H groups, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, youth groups, clubs, organizations etc. to speak about proper recycling, composting, litter prevention and waste reduction. Our curriculum covers a large range of ages. These lessons and activities can be adjusted to meet individual and group needs. Special poster and writing contests are often offered to Ashland County residents throughout the year. Composting field trips can be scheduled for those interested in learning more about the importance of composting.
We would love to come visit your school or Scout group, schedule a composting lesson or offer sound advise on Recycling. To learn more about the programs we offer please send questions to our Education Coordinator, Nancy Earick at email@example.com.
The Ashland County Solid Waste Management District was established in 1990 in response to new Ohio law developed under House Bill 592. The new law required every County in Ohio to be in a solid waste district and to develop a plan to meet a recycling goal of 25% for their district. The Ashland County Solid Waste Management District (District) is required by Section 3734.54 of the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) to periodically update its solid waste management plan (Plan Update). This Plan Update will cover a fifteen year planning period beginning in 2018 and ending in 2032. This Plan Update includes a description of District programs and projections for solid waste generation, recycling and disposal for fifteen years. This Plan Update identifies the District’s strategies for managing the District’s facilities and programs and provides an assessment on achieving statewide recycling and waste reduction goals. This Plan Update follows Ohio EPA’s format Version 4.0.
