Solid Waste, Recycling & Litter Prevention
The Delaware General Health District performs inspections of solid waste facilities within our jurisdiction for the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA). Our staff assure that the operators meet the requirements related to closed landfills, large generators of infectious waste, solid waste transfer stations, scrap tire collection facilities and compost facilities. We do this through a combination of inspection, education and enforcement. We also investigate all reports of solid waste nuisances.
The Delaware General Health District Recycling and Litter Program is an affiliate of Keep America Beautiful. Staff provides recycling and litter prevention education to residents and also organizes clean up activities. Recycling, reuse, litter prevention and disposal of wastes are all essential topics we address in our programming.
