District Management Plan

Ohio Revised Code Section 3734.54(A) states “Each county and joint solid waste management district established under Chapter 343. of the Revised Code shall prepare, adopt, submit to the director of environmental protection for review and approval, and implement a solid waste management plan for the district.” 

This Plan must be projected over 15 years and must be updated, ratified, and re-approved every five (5) years.

Below is the District’s current approved Plan.

The process to update our District Management Plan will begin in 2023. Check the website for updates and upcoming public meetings where you can voice concerns and suggest ideas.



Proposals will be received by the Geauga-Trumbull Solid Waste Management District, 5138 Enterprise Dr. NW, Warren, OH 44481, UNTIL APRIL 19, 2023, AT 3:00 P.M., to provide consulting services for an updated Solid Waste Management Plan following Ohio EPA Format 4.1, meeting requirements of ORC 3734.54.

Request for Proposal (RFP) documents are on file at, and may be obtained from, the Geauga-Trumbull Solid Waste Management District. Contact Jennifer Jones at jenn@startrecycling.com to obtain proposal documents.

Proposals must be received in a closed folder/binder or similar container and bear on its face the name and address of bidder and be plainly marked “PROPOSAL FOR SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT CONSULTANT SERVICES – PLAN UPDATE”. After review and recommendation by a Policy Committee and the Board of Directors, a contract may be awarded by the District, to the responsible firm whose proposal is most advantageous to the District, with price and other factors considered.

The proposal review process will begin on or after 3:00 P.M. on April 19, 2023, in the Geauga-Trumbull Solid Waste District Office. In order to ensure fair and impartial evaluation, proposals and any documents or other records related to negotiation for any contract shall not be available until after the award of that contract. Thereafter, such records will be made available for inspection and copying, upon request, after the District has an opportunity to review such records and redact all information that is prohibited from being released by law.

The District reserves the right to reject any and all proposals and to waive any defect in a proposal unless waiver of that defect would materially alter the RFP requirements.
