Solid Waste Management Plan Update

Franklin County communities are recycling now more than before. Last year, SWACO was pleased to be able to share that our collective rate of recycling jumped to 45-percent – up from 33% and more than the national average of 34%.

In order to continue to address the recycling and waste diversion needs of communities in the Solid Waste District and to meet state-mandated goals, every five-years SWACO updates its Solid Waste Management Plan and submits it to the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. The plan outlines the types of programs and services SWACO offers to meet these requirements.

The Plan Update is available here for review, download and comment.
