Welcome to Spencer County

Solid Waste Management District
 

The Spencer County Solid Waste Management District was created in 1992 to establish environmental programs to encourage recycling and to divert solid waste in Spencer County, Indiana from landfills. The District works to educate Spencer County residents and businesses with information on recycling programs.

The Solid Waste District operates seven recycling drop-off centers in Spencer County with one center at Chrisney set up to accept large items. We may also have solutions for many special waste/disposal questions. The District provides educational materials for schools and waste audits for businesses within the county.
