As a precautionary response to COVID-19, Ohio EPA is currently operating with most staff working remotely. If you are working with our staff on a current project and you know the name of the employee you are working with, email them at firstname.lastname@epa.ohio.gov or call them directly. The Agency website has contact information for every district, division, and office. In order to reach us, please contact Ohio EPA’s main phone line at (614) 644-3020 or the main line for the division or office you are trying to reach.

After March 23, our district offices and Central Office will be temporarily closed and will have increasingly limited ability to receive deliveries, plans, etc. All entities are encouraged to submit plans, permit applications, etc., electronically where there are existing avenues to do so, such as the eBusiness Center (eBiz). Please refer to the list of available services on the main eBiz webpage. We encourage you to make use of all that apply, even if you have not used eBiz in the past. Plans under 25 MB can be emailed. For large plans over 25 MB, entities should work with the reviewer/division to upload via LiquidFiles. Directions for submitting docs via LiquidFiles is available on YouTube. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you in advance for your understanding.

To report a spill or environmental emergency, contact the spill hotline (800) 282-9378 or (614) 224-0946

The Resource rss

Helping communities and businesses access compliance, technical and financial assistance for their environmental needs.

In April 2017, Ohio EPA launched the Ohio Materials Marketplace (OMM), a free online platform connecting businesses to recycling and reuse solutions for their waste and by-product challenges. Ohio businesses, not-for-profits and government organizations can now list available products and materials that would otherwise be destined for disposal in landfills.

Ohio EPA manages and markets OMM along with help from the United States Business Council for Sustainable Development, the Ohio By-Product Synergy Network and Ohio’s Solid Waste Management Districts. OMM has realized steady growth in participation and material transactions. As shown in the OMM Year One Report, members diverted 3,362,000 pounds of material from Ohio’s landfills, saved more than $153,000 through virgin material substitution costs and avoided associated landfill costs.

OMM members include a wide variety of business and organization types actively engaging in continuous transaction conversations. Available and wanted material listings are diverse and are beginning to reveal trends in material management challenges across Ohio. Ohio EPA continues marketing to increase OMM membership numbers and diversity of businesses, while improving member participation and increasing market transactions.

Please visit Ohio.MaterialsMarketplace.org for more information or to participate. If you have questions or need help, please contact Frank Basting at Frank.Basting@epa.ohio.gov or (614) 644-3544.
