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 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.
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.
