SWACO’s Household Hazardous Waste Collection
: Grove City Service Department (3262 Ventura Blvd.) 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Accepted: household hazardous waste mobile collection hosted by the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio including flammable fluids including propane tanks under 20 pounds, nonlatex paint and paint products, reactive agents such as pool chemicals, corrosives including drain cleaners, toxins like pesticides, batteries and fluorescent light bulbs

HHW collection is open to all Franklin County residents, and a detailed list of accepted and non-accepted items is at http://bit.ly/HouseHW. Latex paint no longer will be accepted at HHW collections because it can be easily absorbed by adding cat litter, shredded paper or commercial hardening products and disposed of during residential trash collection. 

Franklin County residents also may take advantage of SWACO’s ongoing HHW collection site at 1249 Essex Ave. in Columbus from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesdays and Fridays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursdays.

Call the Jackson Township Administration Office at (614) 875-2742 or the Grove City environmental coordinator at (614) 277-3058 with questions.

Yabo’s Tacos food truck will be at the Jackson Township Administration Building from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 1, 2016 to provide affordable Tex-Mex food and refreshments during the fall cleanup event. See the menu at http://yabostacos.com/food-truck.
