About Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO)
SWACO is the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio. We are one of 52 solid waste districts created by the Ohio General Assembly in 1989. These districts were established with the mission of reducing reliance on landfills. Acting upon that mission, SWACO provides consumers recycling opportunities around Franklin County at over 200 recycling drop off-locations. To help residents dispose of Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) in an environmentally safe manner, a permanent HHW drop-off site at 1249 Essex Ave., Columbus, OH is available to residents free of charge. We schedule multiple mobile collections for HHW during the spring, summer and fall. For trash that cannot be recycled, we operate the Franklin County Sanitary Landfill and two transfer stations. SWACO's community outreach program works with communities in SWACO's jurisdiction (Franklin County, OH) to provide assistance with marketing, contracts, and other needs in order to keep recycling in the forefront. There is much more about today's SWACO that we would be glad to share with you. Please visit our other website page at www.swaco.org to learn more or call at 614-871-5100 for more information.
