Ohio EPA Hosting Information Meeting about Proposed Landfill

Ohio EPA will host a public information session to present information and answer questions about a proposed new landfill in Richland County’s Butler Township. The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013, in the Butler Township Hall, 6183 Olivesburg-Fitchville Road, Greenwich.

The proposed project is for a new municipal solid waste landfill located at the intersection of Route 13 and Noble Road. If approved, the landfill would occupy 33.4 acres and have an anticipated life of 26 years.

The facility, called Frontier Recycling, is being designed to accept only auto recycling waste from Milliron Industries in Mansfield.

At the information session, Ohio EPA will explain the solid waste permitting process and what is in the application submitted for this proposed facility. If a draft permit is issued, Ohio EPA will hold a public hearing at that time to accept comments on the draft.


The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency was created in 1972 to consolidate efforts to protect and improve air quality, water quality and waste management in Ohio. In the past 40 years, air pollutants dropped by as much as 90 percent; large rivers meeting standards improved from 21 percent to 89 percent; and hundreds of polluting, open dumps were replaced with engineered landfills and an increased emphasis on waste reduction and recycling. Ohio EPA….40 years and moving forward.
