Policy Committee

In addition to the District’s Board of Directors, the District also has a Policy Committee.  The primary responsibility of the Policy Committee is to develop and monitor the District’s Solid Waste Plan.  The Ohio EPA designed the Policy Committee to have a variety of members, representing government, businesses, and citizens. Each county in the district has seven members, totaling 14 in the Geauga-Trumbull SWMD, with an additional member "at-large", for a total of 15 members.
We need your input! The district needs new members for our Policy Committee. 
The District is seeking a representative from the following areas:

If you are a resident of Geauga County:
  • a representative for the general interests of citizens
If you are a resident of Trumbull County:
  • a representative from the industrial, commercial, or institutional sector
These are strictly volunteer positions to prepare, monitor and implement the solid waste management plan of the District. Candidates must be available to attend bi-monthly meetings held at 1:00 PM in the SWMD office on Enterprise Dr. in Warren, OH, or be available to attend via Zoom. Please email a letter of interest and resume to jenn@startrecycling.com or mail to the District office at 5138 Enterprise Dr., Warren, OH 44481.
