Recycling Cart Initiative

SWACO is launching a new program to help any Franklin County community that doesn’t currently own curbside recycling carts to purchase them for only $22.50 per cart – a 50% reduction in price.

Recycling Carts Have Many Advantages Over Recycling Bins

Besides the fact they’re much easier to take to the curb, they also increase recycling volume, allow for automated collection to improve safety and efficiency, reduce litter, and benefit communities as they seek competitive bids for recycling and waste-hauling services.

While ninety-six percent of Franklin County single family households currently have access to curbside recycling pick-up, many communities still use small recycling containers or bins, roughly 18 gallons in capacity, for their residential programs.

SWACO will use a portion of the disposal fee collected at the Franklin County Sanitary Landfill to pay for the costs associated with purchasing the new carts.

Beginning this spring, 65 gallons or greater wheeled recycling carts with lids will be coming to more Franklin County neighborhoods.

SWACO will initially provide the larger wheeled carts to five communities representing over 38,000 households in Bexley, Blendon Township, Gahanna, Reynoldsburg and Westerville.

How We Can Help...

SWACO's program is available to any Franklin County community that doesn’t currently own recycling containers, and that wishes to introduce or upgrade to wheeled carts, to purchase them for only $22.50 – a 50% reduction in price.
