Thanks to a partnership with the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio [SWACO], our existing food waste drop-off site at 1525 Goodale Boulevard next to the former Service Facility is being doubled in size. Residents will now have 12 bins available to drop off foodstuffs 24 hours a day, seven days a week to any of the lined containers at their convenience. This service is being provided free of charge to residents. To learn about more ways to reduce food waste, visit SWACO's Save More Than Food website.
