In an ongoing effort to better serve the needs of the valued industrial and commercial businesses of Miami County, the Miami County Solid Waste District invites you to participate in our annual recycling survey.

The purpose of this statewide survey is to collect data on the amounts and types of materials commercial and industrial businesses recycled in Ohio in 2017. The Miami County Solid Waste District is required to document its recycling efforts in an annual report to Ohio EPA. The District uses the data it receives through surveys to complete that report. By submitting data, your business can help the Miami County Solid Waste District meet its reporting requirements. Your data will also help District track its progress towards meeting local and state recycling goals.

Why is your business being surveyed?

Your business is in the Miami County Solid Waste District. The District facilitates recycling and reduction efforts for commercial and industrial businesses, institutions, residents, and schools. To identify successful programs and determine whether programs are achieving intended results, the Miami County Solid Waste District needs to know what and how much material was recycled. 

Your completed survey will help the Miami County Solid Waste District better understand recycling in the business community in Miami County. Submitting a completed survey also allows your business to connect directly with the District which may be able to assist your company with its recycling needs. 

How do I participate in the survey?

Download the form above. Then, mail or email the completed survey to the Miami County Solid Waste District. Instructions for completing and returning the survey are provided on the survey form.

What happens to my data?

The Miami County Solid Waste District will combine your data with data it receives from other businesses and submit the combined data in its annual report to Ohio EPA. Ohio EPA will use the data to calculate recycling rates for the District. Ohio EPA will also combine the data reported by all solid waste management districts to calculate a recycling rate for Ohio.

Your data will be used to help the Miami County Solid Waste District meet the goals set forth in its 2016-2030 Solid Waste Management Plan. To see the plan, visit www.miamicountyrecycles.org/governance.
