Each resident in Franklin County generates on average 4-5 pounds of waste every day, which, if not reused or recycled, composted or diverted, makes it way to the landfill.
Every year, nearly a million tons of waste is disposed of at the Franklin County Sanitary Landfill (FCSL). The FCSL is a municipal solid waste landfill designed to protect the environment regulated by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
Learn more about the steps SWACO takes to keep waste from entering the landfill, protect local natural resources, have a positive impact on the economy, engineer a modern sanitary landfill for the waste that must be disposed of, protect public health and safety, and how recycling creates more local jobs than landfilling.
