Yard Waste Organics Shrubs Recycling Yard Waste & Eco-Friendly Tips to Make Your Yard Greener With Spring right around the corner, many of us are looking forward to getting outdoors landscaping and cleaning up our yard. Yard waste is a valuable resource that can add nutrients back into the soil as mulch and composting material. Most Franklin County communities provide curbside collection of yard waste to their residents making it easy and convenient to divert the material from the local landfill, thereby returning the nutrients to the earth. Join SWACO and Conservation Specialist from Franklin Soil and Water Conservation District to learn more about best practices for yard waste disposal, yard waste drop off locations and sustainable tips for maintaining your yard all year round.

Election Sign Recycling Event

Election Sign Recycling Event 
November 7 – 8 a.m. to Noon
Bill McDonald Athletic Complex, 4990 Olentangy River Road

Election season is in full swing, as evidenced by the number of political ads on TV and political signs in yards. Whether you’re showing your support for or opposition to a candidate, levy or bond issue, please remember that when Election Day is over, there’s a better way to discard of election signs than throwing them in the trash.

This year, SWACO will again host a yard sign collection event on November 7, the Saturday after Election Day. We will accept all types of yard signs, including those made of paper, cardboard, plastic and corrugated plastic, as well as the metal frames that hold them up.
