Who We Are

The Southeastern Indiana Recycling District (SEIRD) employs 22 individuals at 8 Recycle Centers and 7 Re-Use Centers throughout the 7 counties in our solid waste management district. We are a multi-county cooperative under the supervision of a board of directors made up of 21 local elected officials. Our counties comprise nearly 2,100 square miles consisting of 154,000 residents. The SEIRD Offices, the Learning Center, and the Processing Center are located in the Jefferson Proving Grounds, just north of Madison.

Our Mission

The Southeastern Indiana Recycling District exists to promote and practice good environmental stewardship throughout Franklin, Jefferson, Jennings, Ohio, Ripley, Scott, and Switzerland Counties. Our efforts focus upon preserving and enhancing our environment, natural resources, and public health and safety by leading in the proper management of solid waste. This may be accomplished through the practice of recycling, the reuse of satisfactory items and ultimately the reduction in the volume of material disposals. Together we are partners in protecting the earth.
