GCPH encouraging proper disposal of storm debris


XENIA — Following the recent storms, Greene County Public Health officials are providing information on how to properly and legally dispose of all types of storm-generated material.

Solid Waste Disposal

Trash, household goods and solid waste items from inside the home must be separated from the demolition debris and disposed of at a solid waste landfill, use of a roll off container or through regular trash collection.

Demolition Debris Disposal

All scrap metal, aluminum, appliances and other demolition debris of this nature may be recycled through a metal scrap and recycling facility or disposed of at a licensed Construction & Demolition Debris Landfill.

Tree, Shrub, Landscaping Debris Disposal
