Green Economy Business Park can create 2000 to 3500 jobs


Central Ohio Solid Waste Authority leaders believe they will be successful in attracting businesses to Green Economy Business Park, a 362-acre planned development mostly on the north side of London Groveport Road (State Route 665) in Grove City.

Hannah Greer Brown, SWACO Communications Director, said SWACO’s goal is to attract manufacturers who use recycled materials in their products.

“The SWACO Green Economy Business Park will create a group of companies that use advanced research, technology and manufacturing to bring together the supply chain of recycled materials,” she said. “New jobs can be created, as well as local tax revenue and capital investment in the region. This innovative concept can create tomorrow’s products from today’s recycled materials.”

The 362 acres mostly on the north side of London Groveport Road (State Route 665) in Grove City was farmland.  The Central Ohio Solid Waste Authority plans to turn the land into what it calls a Green Economic Business Park.

Central Ohio is already home to nearly 400 businesses that rely on recyclables, and SWACO’s vision for the business park is to benefit those businesses while attracting more like-minded businesses to the area, she said.

She said the market promises growth.

She said, “We are preparing for the growth of Franklin County and prioritizing local partnerships. It is becoming increasingly clear that there is an emerging market for products made from recycled materials, and we believe that this market will grow in the coming years.”
