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.
