Election Yard Sign Recycling event
Saturday, November 7, 2020
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 7, from 8am to Noon to help residents and political campaigns keep signs from entering the landfill and from littering roadways.
Now that Election Day is behind us, it's important to recycle those political yard signs and now throw them in the trash. The Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio is hosting a yard sign collection event on Saturday, November 7. The event is free and open to any resident or campaign in Franklin County. All paper and plastic signs, including coroplast, and metal sign stands will be accepted free-of-charge. All materials collected will be recycled. Worthington City Ordinance requires political signs be removed within one week after the election so this is a great opportunity for you to dispose of your yard signs in a way that helps the environment.
Alternative Sign Recycling Options
Residents unable to attend Saturday’s recycling event, are encouraged to recycle paper signs in their curbside recycling cart. Stretch or film plastic signs can be recycled at a variety of grocery stores as part of the film plastic recycling programs, and the metal stands can be taken to local metal recyclers. To find film plastic and metal recycling locations, visit the Reuse and Recycling Search Tool at RecycleRight.org.
