Recycling Services in Morgan County

Serving 6 counties in Southeastern Ohio, the SouthEastern Ohio Joint Solid Waste Management District was formed on March 1, 1989 by Guernsey, Monroe, Morgan, Muskingum, Noble, and Washington counties in compliance with Substitute Ohio House Bill 592 which required that counties form solid waste management districts to provide for the reduction of solid waste being disposed of in Ohio landfills, and to provide the District’s residents and businesses with guaranteed solid waste disposal capacity for ten-year to fifteen-year periods. The district also provides programs for the recovery of common recyclables from the home as well as special wastes such as scrap tires, household appliances, electronics, and household hazardous wastes through a variety of private sector and governmental contractors.

The average residence produces approximately 5.4 pounds of solid waste per day for each person living in the home. Recycling is an important practice to reduce landfill disposal. Landfills are unhealthy for the environment, releasing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. You can do your part by managing your waste. Small changes in behavior can have a big impact on our planet.
