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.
