Every year, more than a million tons of material enters the Franklin County Sanitary Landfill. SWACO and Rev1 Ventures have teamed up to connect with startups and innovators that can reduce or divert these material–through reuse, recycling or composting. Our goal is to help Central Ohio reach 75% diversion by 2032.
Diverting food waste from the landfill presents one of the best opportunities for Central Ohio to protect the environment and create new economic opportunities. We are seeking technologies and startups to reduce food waste across residential, commercial, and industrial waste streams.
