Southeastern Indiana Recycling District

Formerly, the Southeastern Indiana Solid Waste District (SISWD), the Southeastern Indiana Recycling District (SEIRD) offers the same great recycling center opportunities along with reuse stores, Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) and pharmaceutical waste disposal, disaster debris management, youth and adult environmental education, and free-standing co-mingled containers throughout several of our counties.

Seird main office

SEIRD services seven Indiana counties including: Franklin, Jefferson, Jennings, Ohio, Ripley, Scott, and Switzerland. The district is comprised of seven recycle centers and six reuse centers. Information on individual county recycle and reuse centers are available on this website.

District News

The District has been “Toter Swapping” since 1995, and with the growing number of Schools the volume of school recycling has doubled in the past 5 years. This has left no room to expand School Recycling, making our old truck inadequate to do the job.

The Purchase of the new fuel efficient truck will reduce road time, loading, unloading and process time. It will also enable the Schools to Co-Mingle fiber materials and provide a much safer collection system. In addition to paper, the truck can accommodate loads of palletized boxes or bins and the pass through storage compartment opens on both sides allowing for additional accessibility.

We implemented Business Recycling Strategies, a new program for our district businesses, to assist and encourage recycling. We are in the process of visiting the businesses to distribute flyers and discuss their recycling options.

Friend us! The Southeastern Indiana Recycling District is on Facebook at Southeastern Indiana Recycling District and is at SEIRD on Twitter. Learn the latest district news and find recycling tips.

A visit to this website indicates your interest in participating locally in the world-wide effort to reduce damage to the environment through recycling, reusing, and proper waste disposal. Browse the links for material specific to each county served, along with other important information such as accepted items for HHW and pharmaceutical waste disposal locations.

SEIRD appreciates the opportunity to serve the residents of their district, and strives to be faithful stewards of their tax dollars.

Recycling isn’t just for Christmas time. But there are more items and packaging to recycle around Christmas, so make it your gift to the environment to recycle all you can.

Christmas Cards
• Christmas cards make great ornaments.

• Framed cards make beautiful pictures.

• Use a pretty card as a bookmarker.

• Have your children make their own Christmas cards by cutting apart pictures and the words from inside the card.

Gift Wrap
• Shred it to protect delicate Christmas decorations in storage.

• Use smaller pieces to make gift tags.

• Save gift bags to use again.

• Remember to recycle the wrapping paper cardboard tubes.

Christmas Trees
• Provide a Bird Habitat - If you have room in your backyard, Christmas trees make excellent bird habitats. Remove the decorations. Make sure there is no tinsel or flocking. Secure the tree by using the stand or stakes and twine. Provide suet holders or hanging strings of popcorn or fresh fruit.

• Create a Fish Habitat - Place cut-up pieces of your Christmas tree on the bottom of your pond to create places for fish to hide. You can also call your state's Department of Natural Resources to see if they need trees for this purpose. Remove all decorations; they can be harmful to fish and other aquatic dwellers.

• Water-Saving Mulch – Most Cities have some form of Christmas tree recycling program. Instead of chucking trees into the dump, they’re transformed into a valuable resource mulch.
