How much life does Franklin County's landfill have left?


The FCSL currently has about 42 years of life left. In 2018, SWACO received approval from the Ohio EPA for a new permit to install. The new permit will allow SWACO to: 


  •  Add more than 30 years of landfill capacity on our existing property 
  •  Ensure adequate landfill space remains available for area residents and businesses
  •  Provides access to safe and efficient disposal for nearly the next two generations

In November 2016, the Columbus Dispatch recognized SWACO's efforts to extend the life of the landfill. Read the article: Recycling plan could extend life of Franklin County landfill
