The Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO), in partnership with the City of Columbus and the Franklin County Environmental Court, will host a political sign recycling event on America Recycles Day, Saturday, November 15, 2014, from 8:00am–12:00pm.
SWACO will be onsite at the Bill McDonald Athletic Complex, located at 4990 Olentangy River Road, Columbus, OH, 43214, collecting political campaign signs for recycling. SWACO will accept paper and plastic (includes coroplast) signs including metal stands for recycling. Paper and metal will be taken to local recyclers, while hard to recycle plastic signage will be taken to Phoenix Recycling in an effort to divert all materials from the landfill.
SWACO representatives are available to help identify ways to reduce waste and recycle more. Contact Kristi Higginbotham, SWACO Outreach and Programs Manager at (614) 801-6413 for more information.
