Commissioners Showcase Bronze SWANA Award
The Lorain County Board of Commissioners are pleased to announce that the Lorain County Solid Waste Management District (LCSWMD) has been awarded the 2013 “Bronze Excellence Award” from the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA), an organization of which the District is a member.
The LCSWMD nominated its Collection Center (located at 540 South Abbe Rd. in Elyria, Ohio) for the “Special Waste” category. The facility opened its doors to Lorain County residents and businesses in June 2010. Since then, it has had a steady stream of patrons of over 10,000 vehicles through its door each year.
