BRIEF HISTORY AND DISTRICT PLAN
The Ohio Legislature created Solid Waste Districts in 1988 by statute to address the growing problems of solid waste disposal. This and other statutes brought in more definitive regulation of landfills and establish state-wide goals for developing recycling.
Every County in Ohio is required to either become a single-county district or join with other counties to create a multi-county district. Logan County became a single-county Solid Waste District on March 9, 1989.
Each District is required to develop a District Plan to promote and encourage waste reduction, re-use, and recycling focused on industrial, commercial and residential waste generators. The District Plan must be approved by local governing bodies and finally by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency for implementation and covers period from three to fifteen years.
The Logan County Solid Waste Management District original Plan was approved December 24, 1996, with the latest Plan Update approved March 15, 2010 with planning between 2009 and 2024.
The District Plan Update for the period 2009 through 2024 is available for public inspection at the Solid Waste Management District Office, the Office of the County Commissioners, and the Logan County Public Library.
