Recycle Indiana - Resources for Citizens
The Solid Waste District offers free recycling
service to businesses. We have two routes, one picks up cardboard and the
one picks up paper, cans, plastic, toner cartridges and anything else
that we accept for recycling. We will come to your business
on a regular
schedule. Why not support your recycling center, save money on your own
trash disposal fees, and conserve natural
resources all for free. Call the
Recycling Center to get on the route.
You are responsible for the proper disposal of your trash. There are many
people who think its O.K. to dump trash along the
roadside, in the river,
and in private containers. This is called ILLEGAL DUMPING and is against the
law in Martin County and the
Sate of Indiana. Illegal dumping is a nasty
dirty habit, a health hazard and unsightly.
The First Impression is By Sight - Its Time To Clean It Up!
It is against the law for citizens to burn trash, such as, household waste,
plastic, batteries, rubber, disposable diapers, painted,
stained or treated
How Does This Affect You?
Open burning is a common practice in Martin County. Recent scientific
research confirms that backyard burning of trash is a
dangerous source of dioxins, furans and small particulate matter, know to
cause illness in humans. In addition to
health risk, most items that are
being burned can and should be recycled.
According to state law, these rules must always be followed.
> Burning must be done during daylight hours.
> Only clean wood products may be burned.
> Burning must be done during safe weather conditions, not during high winds
or on pollution alter days.
> Fires must be attended until completely extinguished.
> Open burning is not allowed at mobile home parks, apartment complexes or
building of more than four dwelling units.
> Fire fighting equipment adequate for the size of the fire must be nearby.
