Recycling & Litter Prevention

The Delaware, Knox, Marion, Morrow (DKMM) Joint Solid Waste District is a legal political subdivision of the State of Ohio and is funded by a $6.00 per ton fee on municipal solid waste generated within our District. DKMM funds programs that provide education about and alternatives to disposal of generated wastes. These programs include: recycling; composting; education and awareness; solid waste environmental monitoring; and collections for household hazardous waste, electronics, and tires. DKMM also provides grant funding to both private and public-sector entities to implement new waste management initiatives or improve existing programs.
