Recycling in Your Community

We provide information about recycling services and programs for each of the 59 communities in Cuyahoga County. See details for your community, including:

  • Curbside recycling program
  • Drop-off recycling options
  • Paper shredding events
  • Special recycling collections (hazardous waste, computers, holiday lights and more)

Municipal governments in Cuyahoga County provide or contract for recycling programs and waste removal services for their own residents. And, while collection methods may vary, the same five core items go into your curbside bin: cans, cartons, glass, paper and boxes plus plastic bottles and jugs. See more details about In Home Recycling.

Your community also offers special recycling programs to manage the items that can't be recycled curbside. See more details about 
Other Recycling and Proper Disposal

** NEW ** Guidance for Multi-Family Housing

Apartment buildings are commercial properties. Generally, municipalities do not provide curbside recycling services to commercial properties including apartment buildings and other multi-family housing units. The responsibility of setting up a recycling program typically rests with property managers, property owners or the boards of condominium and homeowners’ associations.

Cuyahoga Recycles

In spring 2016, the Solid Waste District launched the "Cuyahoga Recycles" education campaign to create a clear, consistent message about what goes in the recycling bin in Cuyahoga County. We want our residents, communities and organizations to recycle better and recycle right.
