Update from SWACO

The latest information from Ty Marsh at SWACO:

We have been working hard to locate and place additional drop-off recycling containers in Clintonville. We are pleased to share that residents are now able to recycle – beyond their curbside container – at three (3), newly placed 8-cubic yard recycling containers at:

· The Soldiery, 4256 North High Street, Columbus, OH 43214  (between Indian Springs and Cooke Road)

We appreciate the generous support of The Soldiery and the community in making this location possible.

As previously mentioned, we are engaged with the city of Columbus on the potential use of one of their Clintonville property locations. We will also explore additional partnerships for other locations in the area.

As you know, our drop-off recycling program has undergone recent changes. Even with those changes, SWACO continues to provide 133 recycling containers at 55 locations throughout Franklin County.

The positive West Nile Virus pools do serve as a reminder for us to continue protecting ourselves from mosquito bites and to eliminate stagnant water from our properties including places such as gutters, rain barrels, and bird baths. One can also protect themselves from mosquito bites by using insect repellents and by minimizing their time spent outside during the late evening and early morning hours. Please let Ryan Younge, RS, the Vector Control Program Manager, know if you would like to discuss in further detail our mosquito reduction activities planned in Clintonville this week.
