Marion County Recycling & Litter Prevention is at your service! We are here to promote green, sustainable living in the Marion area and beyond. Please call anytime to inquire about recycling opportunities, litter prevention activities, senior citizen assistance, environmental education programs for all ages, volunteer opportunities, or to report a litter crime. The Delaware, Knox, Marion, Morrow (DKMM) Joint Solid Waste District is a legal political subdivision of the State of Ohio and is funded by a $6.00 per ton fee on municipal solid waste generated within our District.
 
DKMM funds programs that provide education about and alternatives to the disposal of generated wastes.  These programs include recycling; composting; education and awareness; solid waste environmental monitoring; and collections for household hazardous waste, electronics, and tires.  DKMM also provides grant funding to both private and public-sector entities to implement new waste management initiatives or improve existing programs.
