12 SUMMIT REWORKS
The history of The Summit/Akron Solid Waste Management Authority (the "Authority") begins with the inception of Ohio's new solid waste law that became effective on June 24, 1988, H.B. 592. The goals of H.B. 592 are to reduce the reliance on landfills and increase solid waste reuse, recycling, and waste minimization.

A County ordinance proposing the establishment of the Authority was introduced on March 6, 1989 and adopted on March 20, 1989. It was approved and enacted effective on March 28, 1989.

It was the responsibility of the Authority to prepare the Solid Waste Management Plan with the interest of the health, safety and welfare of the Summit County residents in mind. The purpose of the Plan is to ensure that Summit County has at least ten years of acceptable solid waste disposable capacity, and to develop strategies for managing waste so that it will be prohibited from future landfill disposal.

The Authority is governed by a Board of 13 trustees representing the county, cities, townships, villages, the City of Akron, Health Departments, Mayor's Association and Citizen's At-Large. The Authority is funded by a "generation fee" that is collected for every ton of waste that is generated within Summit County. The fee is $5.00 and is used to fund the on-going, as well as, new programs of the Authority.

In an effort to better deliver on our mission while building awareness of our vision, SASWMA began doing business as ReWorks in February 2013.
