Westerville Recycling Cart

Westerville is "On a Roll"...

Did you know that the average Columbus Region resident generates between four or five pounds of waste each day? There is only so much landfill space available, so it's more important than ever that we mobilize to reuse, recycle, compost or divert as much as we can.

To help ramp up the Westerville community's participation in curbside recycling, the City began deploying new recycling carts to residents on Monday, April 1.

Please place these containers at the curb on your recycling day under the same guidelines as your trash.

About the Carts

The new receptacles can hold up to 64-gallons of recyclables and are easier-to-move, featuring wheels for rolling and a handle for efficient transport to curbside, as well as an attached lid. The new carts are made available through a grant and cost-sharing program provided through the Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO).

Deployment Schedule

Deployment in Westerville is substantially complete.
