About Us


The Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District is the leading resource in Cuyahoga County for information, expertise and programs that support sustainable materials management and reduce the environmental impact of waste. Our six staff work to empower residents, communities and organizations to manage their waste responsibly by reducing, reusing, recycling and composting.
