January 24, 2014 - Policy Committee Meeting
Every five years, solid waste districts give their solid waste management plans a facelift, updating data and strategies for meeting state goals.
It is time to begin the update of the plan for our solid waste district, and the Policy Committee will get that underway in January.
Subcommittees will meet to address disposal, recycling, marketing and outreach, special wastes, business recycling, and finance. Times and dates will be posted here so interested residents can attend.
Once the plan has been updated and received public comment, it will be sent to all municipalities and townships for approval. Then it will be sent to the Ohio EPA for final approval. The whole process is expected to take 18 months.
Recently, Coshocton County's Recycling program began delivering materials to a Rumpke Recycling Center in Mt. Vernon. The center accepts a wider range of plastics than the previous processor, so residents of Coshocton County now have more materials they can divert from landfills.
Just like Licking County, Coshocton County now accepts plastic bottles labeled #1 through #7. Bottles are containers with the neck smaller than the body. Neither program accepts plastic bags, clamshells, styrofoam, toys, swimming pools, siding, or other non-bottle plastic.
