[ARCHIVED] Focusing on Business Recycling

It is estimated that sixty-percent of all waste at the Franklin County Sanitary Landfill comes from the commercial sector. With a goal to increase recycling, SWACO is developing new business programs.

SWACO has conducted local and national research to identify business standards, best practices, and challenges.   

Thousands of businesses  and multi family properties across Franklin County were invited to participate in a survey to provide information to assist in the development of new business programming.  Throughout the rest of 2017, businesses and multi-family are invited to participate in the survey.

New Assistance Program

A Business Assistance Program is in development to provide educational resources, cost incentives and recognition opportunities for Franklin County businesses. 

SWACO’s Innovations & Program team invited key business partners to review the new waste reduction and recycling resources. Reviewing organizations included:

            City of New Albany  

            City of Upper Arlington  

Columbus Crew SC  

Columbus Regional Airport Authority  

DNO, Inc.  

Hexion, Inc.

Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission  

Ohio Department of Insurance  

Ohio EPA  

Pinnacle Pets Play and Stay

Plum Run Winery/Grove City Brewing  

Sassafras Bakery  

White Castle  

Based on the feedback, revisions will be made, and a launch of new programming is expected in the coming months. The program will be publicly available on the SWACO website.

In addition, case studies and success stories from partners will be offered, and updated often.  SWACO will continue to seek innovative collaboration opportunities to benefit the entire community.

Stay tuned to the SWACO website for new business tools and resources.
