Save More Than Food

Posted on December 10, 2020 at 4:28 PM by Mila Susnjar

Last month we mentioned that ReWorks is not the only solid waste management authority/district in Ohio. We all share the same goal – to reduce and manage what goes to landfills – but often we accomplish this goal with different services and programs.

Over the last few years, ReWorks has been working on solutions and sharing information about food waste with other solid waste management authorities/districts from all over the state. Building and sharing a similar message creates unity and lays a strong foundation for any message. Food waste as you most likely know is a significant contributor to landfills.
You might have recently seen some ads with the message “Save More Than Food.” The Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio (SWACO) created this campaign that we are sharing with residents of Summit County. It has been in Summit County newspapers, social media ads and posts, as well as articles.

Our plans for the next few years include dealing with food waste – on many different levels. Since ReWorks serves Summit County residents (i.e. you!) we would like to hear your opinion. We have a survey (approximately 6 questions) that we anticipate would take about 4-5 minutes of your time. Your answers are anonymous and will only be used to help us craft resources, services, and programs for you.  Here's the link to the survey to help!
