Drop-Off Recycling Program

SWACO operates a Drop-Off Recycling program to serve Franklin County residents. Annually about 6,000 tons of recyclable material is diverted from the Franklin County Sanitary Landfill through this program. 

As recycling evolves, and the needs and behaviors of central Ohio residents and businesses change, SWACO's programs strive to keep pace. In order to continue a successful recycling drop-off program, SWACO relies upon the correct participation from the community. Learn more about how to Recycle Right by visiting the SWACO website.
