Materials Management Advisory Council (MMAC)

The Ohio Materials Management Advisory Council (MMAC) was established in 2015 through Ohio House Bill 64. The primary purpose of the council is to provide advice and guidance to the Director of Ohio EPA on solid waste issues, including updates to the State Solid Waste Management Plan and Ohio EPA’s recycling and litter prevention grant programs. The council is also tasked with facilitating partnerships that expand markets for recycled commodities.

The council is comprised of thirteen members appointed by the Governor to serve three year terms. The composition of the council is designed to include key stakeholders in Ohio’s comprehensive solid waste management system and includes representatives from:
