Election Yard Sign Recycling event

Saturday, November 11, 2017

Don’t throw your election yard signs away when they can be recycled. The Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO) is hosting a free Election Yard Sign Recycling event on Saturday, November 11, from 8am to 11am to help residents and political campaigns keep signs from entering the landfill and from littering roadways.

All paper and plastic signs (including coroplast) and accompanying metal stands will be accepted free-of-charge from Franklin County residents. One-hundred percent of the materials accepted during this event are recycled and nothing will be sent to the landfill.

“This week Franklin County residents have the opportunity to exercise their right to vote and protect the environment by recycling their election signs," said SWACO’s Communication Manager Hanna Greer-Brown. “We're inviting residents to stop by the Bill McDonald Complex on Saturday morning and drop off any unwanted signs. We'll make sure any signs we receive are kept out of the landfill and are recycled into new products.” 

Every year, Franklin County residents and businesses landfill over a million tons of material. Fifty percent is comprised of fiber (like carboard and paper), plastics and metals.
