What Is A Solid Waste Management District?
A solid waste management district (SWMD) is Local County’s authority for information about recycling, yard waste, and household hazardous waste (HHW) services. An SWMD tracks material that is recycled, processed, or sent for final disposal (placed in landfills or incinerated). It also conducts recycling and household hazardous waste collection events as well as community outreach and education activities.
History of the Indiana Solid Waste Management Districts
In 1990, the Indiana General Assembly passed Public Law 10-1990. This legislation made sweeping changes in existing state solid waste law, including creating the solid waste management districts. Each of Indiana’s 92 counties (except for Marion) was to have a district or be part of a multi-county one. The districts had a number of responsibilities. For example, they were to develop solid waste management plans, with guidance from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM). IDEM was to provide policy guidance on source reduction and alternatives to dependence on final disposal facilities.

Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) is composed of Morgan County citizens who are appointed by the Morgan County Solid Waste Board. Meetings are open to the public. The CAC meets quarterly at 5:30 PM on the second Monday of the following months: March, June, September & December.
