In early 2. 00. 3, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) retained Engineering Solutions & Design, Inc.
The waste characterization study process included field sorting events at facilities located within each of the selected solid waste management districts. One field sorting event was undertaken in May or June 2. September or October 2. One of the main objectives of the study was to determine the characteristics of the Ohio- generated municipal solid waste stream at various locations throughout the state.
Sites were selected based on location, size and willingness to partner with ODNR and to allow access to the solid waste facility or facilities serving the solid waste district. Summary of Results.

The Waste Characterization Study defined the three standard recyclables as the major components of Ohio's waste stream: paper fibers; plastics; and metals. A number of other materials were considered as separate categories: yard waste; textiles; diapers; food; glass; empty aerosol cans; medical waste; fines; and superfines. Other items, such as computer parts and wood, were classified as miscellaneous.
About 3. 1 percent of the weight measured was mixed paper, newsprint, office paper and corrugated paper. Plastic: 1. 6 percent by weight and 2. HDPE#2, which is commonly used to produce food containers, such as milk and juice jugs, liquid detergent bottles, trash bags and cereal box liners, accounted for approximately 3.
Metals: 4 percent by weight and 7 percent by volume. Food comprised 1. Yard waste comprised 9 percent by weight and 8 percent by volume.
Visual inspection was made of all 4. More than 7. 5 percent of all loads contained loose wood. Carpet was observed in 6.
Additionally, 4. 2 percent of the sampled loads contained small appliances, while almost 3. More than 1. 7 percent of the loads yielded computers. Of the 4. 60 loads sampled during the 2. Waste Characterization Study, 5. The percentage of total paper fibers in the commercial loads was 7. Yard waste, textiles and food waste were less evident in these pure commercial loads. The Ohio Department of Natural Resource's Division of Recycling and Litter Prevention commissioned the Ohio Glass Recycling Study to improve how Ohio connects those who have glass with those who need glass.
Currently Ohio manufacturers use about 1. Ohio and surrounding states, yet their need is greater, at roughly 2. The study, released in May 2. Ohio has a huge capacity for glass recovery. Roughly 9. 0 percent of all glass containers consumed in Ohio are disposed of in landfills as opposed to recycled.
While glass remains an important part of Ohio's industrial base, there appears to be a disconnect on the value of glass being recovered. Glass continues to go to landfills primarily due to perceived lack of markets and an inefficient system for collection and processing. Using recycled glass costs less than using raw materials by reducing energy demands.
Implementing strategies that can strengthen glass recycling programs across the state can create a competitive advantage for Ohio's manufacturers. Long- term, the division will work with industry stakeholders to establish an infrastructure that will help Ohio manage the value inherent in everything now being lost into landfills.
Jobs will also be created throughout the supply chain. Looking forward, the creation of a glass recycling infrastructure represents the first significant step towards establishing Ohio and Ohio's manufacturers as leaders in green business practices that can continue to reap dividends for generations. Recycling is good business, and it is good policy. Going forward, recycling glass represents an opportunity to begin systemic change that will be felt throughout our economy and our communities.

The Construction and Demolition Association of Ohio (CDAO) received a grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) to conduct a wood waste study, in order to research the quantity and quality of wood waste/biomass circulating in the state of Ohio from all sources of wood. The study had five main goals: Identify readily available wood waste sectors, including: Construction and demolition landfills and recyclers. Forestry residues.
Material recovery facilities. Compost facilities. Other sources. Identify/quantify what is currently readily available. Identify general economics. Perform a limited waste sort to confirm similar studies.
Make conclusions and observations regarding the overall findings. The recently released Wood Waste Markets and Resource(s) Study provides a better understanding of the existing wood waste market(s) in Ohio, including producers, users and estimated volumes. Major sources of wood waste/biomass include but are not limited to: Forestry residues. Construction and demolition debris (C& DD) processors. Mill residues. Landfills. C& D and MSW)Other sources (i.
Potential future markets are extensive including fuel uses to manufacturing feedstock. All potential sources may be needed if the state is looking to attract, renovate and/or expand existing industries to Ohio. For more information, read the entire report or review a summary of the findings.
The Co- Digestion Economic Analysis Tool assesses the initial economic feasibility assessment of food waste co- digestion at wastewater treatment plants for the purpose of biogas production. Co- digestion is when energy- rich organic waste materials (for example, food waste, fats, oil and grease) are added to an anaerobic digester currently processing less energy- rich organic waste (for example, sewage or manure). Co- digestion allows facilities with excess digester capacity to save and make money, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions, providing a renewable energy source and diverting valuable resources from landfills and/or sewer pipes.
The WARM Waste Reduction Model was originally developed for small to moderate- scale waste managers enabling them to understand how their “business- as- usual” waste management practices compare to alternative practices, such as recycling, source reduction or composting, in terms of greenhouse gas emissions and energy use. Its user base has expanded to include various community officials, U. S. EPA Waste. Wise partners and municipalities interested in learning more about the climate and waste connection. However, the results garnered from using WARM are estimates and the model approach is not appropriate for use in inventories because of the diffuse nature of the emissions and emission reductions within a single emission factor calculated in WARM.
