Waste Assessments


The Allen County Solid Waste Management District offers waste assessments free of charge to local businesses, non-profit organizations and governmental agencies.



A waste assessment is an on-site evaluation of the waste stream and recycling potential of an  organization. We can then assist in the implementation of a waste reduction program in the workplace.

Step 1: Overview

This guide, General Waste Assessment Recommendations 2014, will help you get started on the process to develop, implement and maintain a waste reduction program.

Step 2: Waste Assessment Questionnaire

This questionnaire, WasteAuditQuestions , gathers information about current disposal methods, recycling programs and trash contracts. It will help determine where you are currently and the goals you wish to set in relation to waste reduction.  Submit questionnaire via fax (260-449-7716) or email jodi.leamon@co.allen.in.us.

Step 3: Schedule a Waste Assessment

Our staff will walk through your facility to assist in tailoring a recycling program to fit your organization’s specific needs. This optional service is free of charge.

Step 4: Get the Credit you Deserve! 

The District encourages organizations to be recognized for their waste reduction.  Customers appreciate your efforts too! Please consider nominating your place of business for an Excellence in Recycling Award!  Fill out a nomination here.
