Warren Co. Soil & Water Conservation District-July, 2020-Household Hazardous Waste Disposal

Posted on: June 30th, 2020 by jhaddix

Products in our homes and garages that are flammable, toxic, corrosive, or reactive are considered household hazardous waste. Products such as pesticides, paints, pool chemicals, CFL light bulbs, cleaners, oils, automotive fluids, thinners/strippers, acids/bases, and batteries require special care when disposing of them and can catch fire, react, or explode under certain circumstances.

Why is household hazardous waste a problem? Household hazardous waste poses many dangers ranging from personal exposure to the substances during use, to contamination of water resources from improper disposal of chemicals down a storm drain or into a ditch, where they can be transported directly to bodies of water. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average home can accumulate as much as 100 pounds of hazardous waste! That’s 100 pounds of household chemicals with labels that say: poison, corrosive, toxic, flammable, or keep out of reach of children/pets, in your home.

Paint is one of the most common household wastes and can be the most confusing to deal with.  First, read the label and identify whether the paint or stain is water-based or oil-based. Water-based products can be disposed of in your regular trash, but must be hardened first using kitty litter or other paint hardening product. Be sure to leave the lid off the can so your waste hauler can confirm the product is dry or else they may refuse to collect it.  If the product is oil-based it is considered a hazardous waste and should be taken to hazardous waste center where it will be properly recycled or disposed. Warren County has a latex paint only recycling drop-off location in Lebanon.  This is open weekdays and is for Warren County residents only. Questions regarding the drop-off site should be directed to the Warren County Solid Waste Management District, 513-695-1209.

What should you do with household hazardous waste if you have it or plan on using it?

  • Before purchasing hazardous chemicals, have a plan for the excess or only buy what you know you will need. Some left-over products could be donated to neighbors, family or friends to use.
  • Handle household hazardous waste carefully to avoid injury to yourself or the environment.
  • Store wastes in their original container with the labels intact.
  • Save household hazardous wastes until it can be properly disposed of at a certified disposal facility.
  • For lists of local recycling and disposal sites, check the Warren County Solid Waste Management District website – or email for specific questions.”.

For more questions regarding Soil and Water Conservation District programs and/or technical assistance on water or soil questions visit,  or call, 513-695-1337.

Short Recap:

The average home can accumulate as much as 100 pounds of hazardous waste! That’s 100 pounds of household chemicals with labels that say: poison, corrosive, toxic, flammable, or keep out of reach of children/pets, in your home.

Restart Information from the South Lebanon Water Department

Posted on: May 7th, 2020 by jhaddix

The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) has issued the following memo regarding water supply flushing:

As businesses and buildings reopen under the “Responsible RestartOhio” plan due to the COVID-19 pandemic, that have had little to no water usage, it is important to flush water that has been stagnant. Low water usage can contribute to bacterial growth, including Legionella which can cause a serious type of pneumonia called Legionnaires’ disease. It can also cause other water quality issues with potential health risks due to the build-up of lead and copper in stagnant water that’s been collecting in older pipes and fixtures.

As buildings reopen, it is critical to drain, flush, and if necessary based on a review of building conditions, disinfect the hot and cold-water systems to remove harmful contaminants. Devices that store water, such as drinking water fountains, water heaters, storage tanks, and any droplet or mist-forming devices such as cooling towers, humidifiers, showerheads, and certain medical and manufacturing devices and process equipment should also be flushed and disinfected in accordance with manufacturer’s recommendations or industry best practices.

The Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has issued a letter with more information, which you can access HERE, as well as “Guidance for Premise Plumbing Water Service Restoration”, which you can access HERE.

All questions should be directed to the Ohio Department of Health COVID-19 Hotline at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH.

Here are a couple of additional suggestions from the Village for getting back in buildings that haven’t been used in awhile:

  1. Flush sink fixtures for 3-5 minutes to remove stagnate water especially prior to use for consumption;
  2. Dump automatic ice bins 2-3 times before consumption;
  3. Flush toilets 2-3 times to wash down the drain;
  4. Pour a gallon of water down drains that have not been in use for 30 days.  This will prevent sewer gas from entering the building from dry P traps in the drains; and
  5. Check dates on perishables left in refrigerators.

Feel to contact the Village Utility Office with any additional questions at (513) 494-2296.

Message from the Mayor-Development continues in the Village

Posted on: April 30th, 2020 by jhaddix

To the Residents of South Lebanon:

Despite the Statewide restrictions due to the COVID-19 virus, the Village continues to attract new businesses and developments. Here is an update on a couple of current developments taking place in the Village:

Siteworx – Driving north on Interstate 71, you may have noticed the new building under construction just past the Turtlecreek Road overpass. This will be the new headquarters for Siteworx, a site development company that has been located in the Village since its inception in 2010. Siteworx has grown from just five (5) employees in 2010 to well over 100 employees. In addition to being a growing company, they have also been a good community partner throughout the years. We are fortunate to have a quality company like Siteworx located in the Village.

McDonalds – At their meeting on April 21st, the Village Planning Commission approved the site plan for a new McDonald’s restaurant. It will be located next to the Mike’s Carwash (currently under construction) in the Rivers Crossing West development along State Route 48. McDonald’s officials have stated that they are planning on breaking ground in July but this may get pushed back due to the impacts of the corona virus. We will keep you updated on the progress.

In addition to these developments, there are additional residential and commercial developments in progress that we will continue to keep you updated on.

Stay Safe,

Mayor James D. Smith

Restrictions in Place for State Route 48 Bridge Project

Posted on: April 21st, 2020 by jhaddix

Warren County (Tuesday, April 21, 2020) – Preliminary work has begun for a bridge rehabilitation project on state Route 48 in Warren County, and single-lane restrictions are now in effect.

Contractors for the Ohio Department of Transportation will be rehabilitating the structure over the Little Miami near the corporation limit of South Lebanon. During the initial phase of work, SR 48 will be reduced to one lane during daytime, business hours for crews to install a work platform under the bridge.

Traffic will be maintained by flaggers from approximately 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, weather permitting, and the hours of operation will extend through the weekend and continue until the platform is constructed.

Following initial work, the bridge will be closed beginning Monday, June 1. The closure will be in effect for up to 75 days, and motorists will be detoured by way of I-71, S.R. 123 and U.S. 22.

Great Lake Construction Company was awarded a contract for approximately $7.29 million to complete work on the S.R. 48 bridge rehabilitation, as well as the U.S. 22 bridge over the Little Miami at Foster that will undergo routine maintenance work in 2021.
