Mission Statement

The Wood County Solid Waste Management District was created as a result of House Bill 592, passed in 1988. The bill created 52 Solid Waste Management Districts in Ohio.

Our mission as a Solid Waste Management District is to assure there is sufficient capacity available to dispose of local waste and to implement programs to reduce, reuse, and recycle 50% of the waste that is generated by local businesses and residents. We are also required to ensure that 90% of the county residents have access to recycling, or to provide data that 25% (or more) of residential materials are recycled.
