August 8, 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.
The Policy Committee accepted recommendations from working subcommittees on content of the plan, and sent an approved plan to the Ohio EPA for review and comment. Once comments are received, the Policy Committee may make further changes before sending it out for public comment.
The draft plan will be available for a 30-day public review at libraries in the city of Coshocton, Newark, Lancaster and New Lexington beginning in August.
The District will encourage, but not mandate, curbside recycling in communities that can economically support it.
The District will continue to offer the drop-off recycling program in all four counties.
The District will implement education programs to encourage people to use the recycling opportunities available.
The District will support enforcement of laws and regulations preventing litter and open dumping.
The District will increase fees for out-of-district waste and out-of-state waste, but there will be no increase on in-district waste. Residents and businesses should NOT see an increase in their trash bills due to this update.
