Recycling Convenience Center


SWACO’s Recycling Convenience Center is dedicated to providing convenient and accessible location for Franklin County residents to recycle a wide range of materials and reduce the environmental impact of waste disposal. 

The Center serves as a one-stop destination for individuals seeking a hassle-free avenue to recycle a diverse array of materials. By eliminating the complexity often associated with recycling, SWACO intends to make it second nature for every resident to divert recyclable items from landfills, fostering a more sustainable future for our region.
