Sustainable materials management includes practices such as reusing and recycling, composting, developing and using non-toxic and biodegradable products, finding ways to reduce or eliminate material inputs, and recovering by-products for beneficial use.

Materials Management Working Group

The Materials Management Working Group is made up of local residents and representatives from Central Ohio communities, non-profits, solid waste districts, businesses and public agencies. The Group strives to help Central Ohio realize the greatest possible efficiencies from the materials used in the region. Working Group meetings occur bi-monthly on the fourth Wednesday of each month from 3pm-4:30pm at MORPC’s office, 111 Liberty Street, Suite 100 in Columbus. For more information contact Brandi Whetstone at 614.233.4174.
