Solid Waste Education

 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
