The Bath Township Solid Waste
District was organized by the Bath Township Board of Trustees in 1993
with collection starting in the Spring of 1994. The following were goals
established by the Township Trustees in the creation of the Bath
Township Solid Waste District:
the Township in compliance with House Bill 592 and provided landfill
waste reduction data.
Provided waste disposal services at a favorable cost compared with
recycling opportunities to the residents of Bath Township.
Some of the fringe
benefits of the program that were stated when the District was formed
would be a reduction of heavy truck traffic on township roads;
single garbage collection day for most of the neighborhoods; and
stepping stone for the offering of yard waste and brush disposal
services for those citizens who require or want such services.

2015 Tonnage Report
Since the addition of the red recycling bins through
the township trash hauler, Rumpke, recycling in the
township has increased noticeably. Beginning in
October 2011, residents have yet another convenient
way to recycle in the township. Recycle
collection centers have been added at the Bath Elementary
School and the Herberich School parking lots. These centrally located
collection centers allow schools, businesses, and
residents with no curbside recycling the opportunity
to recycle items.
A recycling center has been a common request from Bath
residents for quite some time. The township had
received grants from the ReWorks (Summit Akron Solid Waste
Management Authority) for three years. This
money was saved to the specific purpose of providing
a recycling center. No tax or school levy money was
used for this project. Then with cooperation from
the Revere and Copley/Fairlawn schools, these locations were
respect the safety and educational atmosphere of
schools. Please use this recycling center
outside of school hours only.
