Bring Me Back News


Project Background

Every year, Ohioans throw away millions of plastic bags which end up in landfills.

In 2015, SWACO,  the city of Columbus and various retailers began a community conversation to explore how best to address the improper disposal of plastics bags in Franklin County. As the result of more than twelve months of work, in 2016, the partners developed and launched 'Bring Me Back' - an educational program to encourage residents to return their plastic bags to collection bins at local retailers and use reusable shopping bags, when possible. The program also reminds residents not to curbside recycling their bags, as many recyclers don't accept them and the bags can disrupt the recycling process.

Community event organizers and local retailers in Franklin County are encouraged to join the awareness campaign. Simply download the program materials below, add your logo and begin distributing the information at public events and meetings.

Recycle Your Plastic Bags today! Find a location close to you.

*If you're a business or location in Franklin County that accepts plastic bags and films for recycling but you aren't listed on the map below. E-mail us at info@swaco.org in order to be added.
