Geauga - Trumbull Solid Waste Management District

State law requires each Ohio County to establish or join other counties to form a solid waste management district. Geauga and Trumbull Counties formed the Geauga-Trumbull Solid Waste Management District (District) in 1993.

The Geauga-Trumbull Solid Waste Management District is responsible for implementing a solid waste plan designed to achieve goals determined by the Ohio EPA for waste reduction, recycling, and reducing reliance on landfills. Funding for our District is received through a contract fee with landfills and transfer stations that agree to accept solid waste from the counties of Geauga and Trumbull. These fees are then used to provide programs and services to residents that include household hazardous waste collection, scrap tire collection, appliance recycling, and recycling drop-off sites.
