Municipal HHW Guidelines

The Solid Waste District has developed materials and documents to help our communities and their service departments operate their household hazardous waste (HHW) collections.  This list includes a collection of items from the District, our HHW contractor, and the Ohio EPA.

If there are any questions about these items, please contact us.
