New Recycling Education Website - - is Up and Running

RR WebsiteIn 2018, SWACO launched “Recycle Right, Make a Difference,” an educational campaign designed to increase recycling and reduce recycling contamination. SWACO created the campaign following a survey that showed residents were excited about recycling but confused about what items can and cannot be recycled.

SWACO recently introduced a website,, to support the campaign. The new site provides a one-stop source for residents to learn about recycling, including what can be recycled through Franklin County’s curbside and drop-off recycling programs, how the recycling process works, and why it’s important to “recycle right.” The website also includes a recycling and reuse search tool, which suggests ways to responsibly discard hard-to-dispose-of materials like tires, paint and electronics.

Since Recycle Right’s launch, SWACO has rolled out the campaign to eight communities across Franklin County. It plans to extend the campaign to 23 more communities in 2019. Visit to learn more and look out for Recycle Right materials coming to your neighborhood soon.
