Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information, Questions, and Guidelines

Division of Materials and Waste Management's information and guidelines to COVID-19.

 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 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.

If you wish to send hard copies of documents to any of Ohio EPA’s district offices, the best method to ensure we receive these documents is to send them via U.S. Mail. Since all offices are closed, deliveries outside of U.S. Mail (FedEx, UPS) will likely be returned because the offices are closed and deliveries cannot be made.

We encourage you to submit fee reports and payments, registrations, licenses, etc. electronically if possible using any of our online services. Please refer to the list of available electronic services and contacts available from DMWM at DMWM eservice. For help establishing new accounts through our eBusiness services, contact Leanne Greenlee or (614) 705-1012.

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