Pike County Solid Waste & Recycling


2022-2036 Solid Waste Management Plan Draft

Our Mission

The Pike County Solid Waste Management District is dedicated to serving the residents of Pike County.  Along with providing information on solid waste activities, we also support various recycling programs and provide educational presentations for audiences of all ages.  We are very active with the community and rely heavily on public input and feed back to design our programs.  We are committed to reducing land fill reliance and increasing recycling within Pike County.

Who We Are

The Pike County Solid Waste Management was created as a result of House Bill 592, passed in 1988.  The Bill created 52 Solid Waste Districts in Ohio.  The Pike County Board of Commissioners established Pike County as a single county district and formed the Pike County Solid Waste Management District on March 24, 1998.  The Pike County Solid Waste Management District operates the Pike County Recycling Center, provides drop off recycling bins in 90% of the county, provides local recycling drives and provides recycling education and outreach programs.  Please scroll to the bottom of this page for information on our recycling drop off locations, other recycling opportunities, our outreach efforts, and other educational material on recycling.

How is the District Funded

 Ohio law allows Solid Waste Districts to Fund their recycling programs by collecting a fee on solid waste disposed in landfills and transfer stations.  The Law requires Ohio landfills and transfer stations to collect fees on behalf of the Districts and remit the fees monthly to the appropriate Solid Waste District.

The District does not receive funding from the County General Fund.  Neither can District Fees be used to support County Activities.  Fee revenue can only be spent on District Activities.
