About Yard

Formerly, the Southeastern Indiana Solid Waste District (SISWD), the Southeastern Indiana Recycling District (SEIRD) offers the same great recycling center opportunities along with reuse stores, Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) and pharmaceutical waste disposal, disaster debris management, youth and adult environmental education, and free-standing co-mingled containers throughout several of our counties.

This site accepts Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) such as cleaning chemicals, oil based paints and stains, insecticides and herbicides, etc. Special collections will fall on designated Saturdays in March and August throughout the year. Please consult the downloadable brochure for your county on this website to confirm exact collection dates and times. Residents of the Southeastern Indiana Recycling District may dispose of HHW year-round (during regular business hours) at the Jefferson County Recycling Center in Madison. Currently there is no fee for this service. 

 SEIRD Recycle Centers are no longer accepting any oil-based paints and stains except on designated HHW collection days. Fluorescent tubes and bulbs are the only HHW drop off items accepted at this recycling center during normal business hours. In addition, any unlabeled/unidentifiable items or latex paints can no longer be accepted. There is no charge for this service.

Residents may dispose of medical waste, such as syringes and unused medicines, at the Ripley County Health Department during normal business hours. Controlled substances (narcotics) can be dropped off at the Ripley County Sheriff's Department and the Batesville Police Department 24/7 at no charge.

Special Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Collections at the Batesville Center was the first Saturday in March of 2016.Summer 2016 Schedule: Saturday, August 6 Franklin Cty Recycle Center from 8:00-10:00am. Ripley Cty Center (Osgood) from 11:00am-1:00pm.

Pharmaceutical waste disposal including non-controlled and controlled medications, syringes, etc. are accepted at the following locations in Ripley and Franklin counties: Ripley County Sheriff and Health Departments, Franklin County Sheriff and Health Departments, Batesville Police Department, and Margaret Mary Hospital.

Services

The Southeastern Indiana Recycling District (SEIRD) exists to promote and practice good environmental stewardship throughout Franklin, Jefferson, Jennings, Ohio, Ripley, Scott, and Switzerland Counties. Our efforts focus upon preserving and enhancing our environment, natural resources, and public health and safety by leading in the proper management of solid waste. This may be accomplished through the practice of recycling, the reuse of satisfactory items and ultimately the reduction of materials entering our landfills.

Currently SEIRD operates and staffs seven recycling centers and eight reuse centers throughout seven counties.

SEIRD partners with county sheriff, police, and health departments to be collection sites for pharmaceutical waste. Residents have access to drop boxes that are available throughout the district for controlled and non-controlled medication disposal 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

Household hazardous waste disposal (HHW) opportunities are provided throughout the district, with three special collection days available per year. Residents of all our serviced counties are encouraged to drop HHW off at the Jefferson County Recycling Center year-around during normal business hours.

Youth and adult education is an important facet of SEIRD. Recycling educators are on staff to teach residents about recycling in school classrooms, businesses, community meetings and events, and through club or church functions.

The students went above and beyond in SEIRD’s educational recycling challenge, earning them their choice of prizes for their school.

SEIRD places recycling containers at various locations throughout the district. Since most of the district is rural, stand-alone receptacles allow for recycling in remote parts of the counties without having to drive a great distance to a recycling center.

In an effort to fully serve its district, SEIRD partners alongside the Indiana Department of Homeland Security to assist in the removal of debris that Mother Nature’s fury sometimes leaves behind. The role of SEIRD is to not only help remove disaster debris but also to assess the degree and expense of the damages to any given region.

When you throw away an aluminum can, you waste as much energy as if you’d filled the can half full of gasoline and poured it into the ground. Americans use 100 million tin and steel cans each day. Recycling one can saves enough energy to run a 100 watt light bulb for 20 hours, a computer for 3 hours, and a TV for 2 hours.*

In 1998 Americans used 2 billion pounds of HDPE for plastic bottles for household products, equal to 90,000 Honda civics.
