Each resident in Franklin County generates on average 4-5 pounds of waste every day, which, if not reused or recycled, composted or diverted, makes it way to the landfill.
Every year, approximately a million tons of waste is disposed of at the Franklin County Sanitary Landfill (FCSL). The FCSL is a municipal solid waste landfill designed to protect the environment and regulated by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
