Trash, Recycling and Yard Waste Information

Why Recycling Matters

The amount of waste created by central Ohio residents and businesses is staggering.  In fact, every resident generates an average of 9 to 10 pounds of waste each day, of which half comes to the landfill.  With only so much landfill space available, it’s more important than ever that we reuse, recycle, compost or divert as much as we can.
