The Franklin County Sanitary Landfill (FCSL) receives just over one million tons of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) every year. Between 60 to 70% of all the waste that comes to the landfill could have been recycled or diverted. SWACO is your community resource to recycle your unwanted items in the most efficient, cost-effective and sustainable manner.
