Proof of residency is required.

Residents are asked to please limit drop-offs to regular household garbage.

Construction material, tires or hazardous waste items will NOT be accepted during these regular Saturday drop-offs.

The Service Department does provide assistance should you experience a sewer back-up or slow drains.  Crews will perform snaking of both the sanitary and the storm line, between the clean out and the main line in the street.  Property owners are responsible for any blockages, breaks, etc. that may occur between the clean out and the home.  Property owners are also responsible for any internal issues that may arise.  Please contact the Service Department at 440.884.9607 to make a request for assistance.  It is required that an adult be at the home when the Sewer Crew comes out to address the problem.

Automated Refuse & Recycling Guide

Beginning in April 2012, our city became one of the first in Cuyahoga County to have automated trash collection and recycling, at no added cost to you.  Automated refuse collection is the most efficient and cost effective system available today.  Automated recycling increases participation, reduces landfill waste and  conserves natural resources. 

Residential curbside refuse collection is provided by Republic Waste Services every Wednesday.  Refuse containers should be out after 4:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and by 7:00 a.m. on Wednesdays. Empty cans must be removed from the tree lawn within twelve hours after pick-up and should be stored out of sight from the street.

For more information on the program, please click here. For more information about recycling, please visit the Cuyahoga County Solid  Waste District's website at

The following items are EXCLUDED from regular pick up:

Hazardous waste of any kind, building materials resulting from construction, dirt, concrete, sod, car batteries, and oils. Waste generated by commercial contractors will not be picked up.  Please click here for information on Special Waste Collection Dates.

Refuse Collection Fee

The Refuse Collection Fee on your property tax bill is for the current year. The fee for residential solid waste collection is added to the property tax bill as a simplified method of billing that eliminates the nuisance of quarterly billing and payments, and automatically ensures that all Homestead Exemption-qualified residents receive a $1 per month discount.
