Policy Committee


In 1988, when stories of abandoned hazardous waste dumps filled our newspapers and out-of-state garbage threatened to fill up Ohio landfills, the Ohio legislature decided to act to avoid a future waste disposal crisis in Ohio.

As a result, Ohio House Bill 592, the state's solid waste management law, was enacted. It requires Ohio's counties to take responsibility for planning adequate landfill capacity for their citizens and reducing the amount of trash disposed in landfills.
