Dispose of Trash Right

I have large amounts of garbage to dispose of and I can't put it at the curb. What do I do?
There are no open or operating landfills in Cuyahoga County. If you have excess debris or questions about service, contact your city service department about bulk waste pick-up your community.

Several private companies will rent dumpsters or containers for large clean outs. You can also deliver waste to a solid waste transfer station for a fee. See our full list of waste transfer stations in Cuyahoga County.

If you hire a rubbish removal company be sure to ask where the waste will be disposed and request dump tickets to make sure the waste was properly disposed at a landfill or transfer station rather than illegally dumped.

The Hoarding Connection of Cuyahoga County offers a list of resources for professional services and large scale cleanouts. See their website.

Pet Waste
Pet waste should be bagged and placed in the regular trash. The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District offers guidance about water quality and pet waste pick up. See their website to learn more and order Pick Up Poop yard signs.
