Wednesday, November 15 is National Recycle Right Day!
Not only do the majority of central Ohio’s residential recyclables remain in Ohio as new products, but Franklin County’s recycling industry also supports more than 5,000 jobs and brings in $1.3 billion in revenue annually — economic impact that could grow even more with increased recycling.
SWACO’s (Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio) Recycle Right initiative focuses on generating recycling awareness and education through social media, television, and other advertising efforts as well as through meaningful engagement and outreach activities. SWACO works with more than two dozen communities, including the City of Gahanna, to implement various educational components of Recycle Right at the community level. Recycle bins are located at Academy Park and are free for the public to use for their recyclable materials.
With the help of SWACO, the City is focusing on promoting the added benefits to recycling and recycling the correct items. To find out which materials can be recycled in Franklin County, visit RecycleRight.org. To learn more about the City of Gahanna’s Refuse and Recycling Program, click here.
