The Jefferson-Belmont Regional Solid Waste Authority (JBRSWA) invites you to participate in our annual districtwide recycling survey. This survey is conducted to collect data on the amounts and types of materials commercial and industrial businesses recycled in Jefferson/Belmont County’s. The JBRSWA is required to document recycling efforts in an annual report to Ohio EPA. The Authority uses the data it receives through surveys to complete that report. By submitting data, your business can help the JBRSWA meet its reporting requirements and help the Authority track its progress towards meeting local and state recycling goals. Keep your calendars marked for completing this survey every March. Follow our website page to find updated survey forms and deadlines: https://www.jbgreenteam.org/district-survey
Why is your business being surveyed?
Your business is located in the Jefferson-Belmont Regional Solid Waste Authority. The Authority facilitates recycling and reduction efforts for commercial and industrial businesses, institutions, residents, and schools. In order to determine what programs make the most sense and whether programs are achieving intended results, the JBRSWA needs to know what and how much material was recycled. Your completed survey will help the JBRSWA better understand recycling in the business community in Belmont and Jefferson Counties.
What happens to my data?
The Jefferson-Belmont Regional Solid Waste Authority will combine your data with data it receives from other businesses and submit the combined data in its annual report to Ohio EPA. Ohio EPA will use the data to calculate recycling rates for the JBRSWA. The Authority’s 2018 data is posted on Ohio EPA’s webpage. Ohio EPA will also combine the data reported by all solid waste management districts to calculate a recycling rate for Ohio.
