Tanglers are things like bags, films, ropes, cords, hoses, light strands and wires that jam sorting machinery by wrapping around the equipment discs and wheels. This creates problems and can shut down an entire Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs) or recycling plant that sorts recyclables. Do not put these tanglers in your curbside recycling. Some of these items can be recycled elsewhere. Plastic bags and film can be recycled at many retail locations while light strands and cords can be recycled at the Solid Waste District located at 4750 East 131 Street in Garfield Heights. Drop off during business hours M-F 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
