State law requires each Ohio County to establish or join other counties to form a solid waste management district. Carroll, Columbiana, and Harrison Counties formed the CCH Solid waste District in 1993, now known as CCH Environmental Group.
CCH Environmental Group is responsible for implementing a solid waste management plan designed to achieve the goals set by the Ohio EPA for waste reduction, recycling and reducing reliance on land filling waste generated within the District. Funding for our District is received through a contract fee with the landfills that agree to accept waste from our District. These fees are then used to provide programs and services for the residents, schools and organizations throughout the District.
