About Us


The District’s Mission is to ensure that comprehensive, high-quality solid waste services are available to Clark County residents and businesses, and to supply environmental education and assistance to the community that will promote cost-effective and self-supporting waste reduction programs.

Annual Report for 2018

The District prepares an annual report on its programs and activities. That report is presented to the Clark County Commissioners and the Springfield City Commission. A copy of the 2018 report is available here.

Solid Waste Plan

The District prepares a 15-year Solid Waste Management Plan  that sets out goals and programs for the district. The plan is updated every five years and the update is ratified by political entities representing at least 60 percent of the county's population and by the county commissioners, as well as being approved by Ohio EPA. To see the current Solid Waste Management Plan for the years 2019-2033, click here.

The Policy Committee is working on the latest update of the Solid Waste Management Plan. A paper copy of the Draft Plan Update is available at the Solid Waste District office, 1602 West Main St. An electronic copy is available here.

As part of our research for possible new programs, we have been making videos of what some other solid waste districts do. To read about these programs and view these videos, click here.
