SWACO logo

Columbus, OH – LifeCare Alliance, one of the oldest and largest organizations in central Ohio, best known as the leading provider of Meals-on-Wheels, is pleased to announce we have been awarded a Community Waste Reduction Grant through SWACO’s competitive grant program for the purchase of containers that align with current best management practices for recycling. With SWACO’s support, LifeCare Alliance will be able to provide new recycling stations in all three of our buildings to reinforce the importance of waste diversion for the long-term sustainability of our community.

In 2020, SWACO awarded $194,000 in competitive grant funding to fifteen community projects.

“SWACO’s grants support unique and innovative projects throughout Franklin County as a way to improve the local waste stream by increasing diversion,” said Hanna Greer-Brown, SWACO’s communications manager. “We applaud the work of LifeCare Alliance to prioritize sustainability and join our efforts to reach a 75% diversion goal by 2032.”
