Commitment to Action

Appalachian Ohio Zero Waste Initiative

Commitment by

Rural Action

In 2011, Rural Action committed to conduct research, advocate for policy, support local business development, and invest in new infrastructure that will improve waste management in the Athens-Hocking Solid Waste District in southeastern Ohio. Currently, the waste management system employed in this district adds little economic value to local communities. In collaboration with local partners, Rural Action seeks to guide the creation of a new system for managing, recycling, and re-purposing the waste of this two-county district, making it a regional and national leader in rural waste management and sector-based wealth creation.
