Bath Township Solid Waste District

Residents must contact the Bath Township Solid Waste District (330-666-4007) to sign up for service.

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:

  • Placed the Township in compliance with House Bill 592 and provided landfill waste reduction data.

  • Provided waste disposal services at a favorable cost compared with present costs.

  • Offer recycling opportunities to the residents of Bath Township.

Some of the fringe benefits of the program that were stated when the District was formed were:

  • There would be a reduction of heavy truck traffic on township roads;
  • A single garbage collection day for most of the neighborhoods; and
  • A stepping stone for the offering of yard waste and brush disposal services for those citizens who require or want such services.

Township Recycling Centers   

     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 chosen.

Residents should respect the safety and educational atmosphere of schools. Please use this recycling center outside of school hours only.

Curbside Clothing Recycling
