| SEWER MAINTENANCE PROGRAM
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.

Director of Public Service
The Department of Public Service provides a variety of services to our residents. The department’s responsibilities range from street and sewer repairs, snow and leaf removal, and facility and grounds maintenance. While the City does not operate its own in-house refuse collection service, the service is provided on a weekly basis by a private contractor.
Please see below for more detailed information on each of the services that we provide.
GREEN REFUSE & RECYCING INITIATIVE
2014 Special Waste Collection Events
Update: Republic Services has completed the update to their processing facility as promised.
- Residents may now begin recycling plastics numbered 1 through 7
- In addition, cardboard milk, juice, and broth cartons may also be recyled.
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, saving tax dollars by reducing disposal costs while conserving natural resources.
Residential curbside refuse collection is provided by Republic Waste Services on a weekly basis on Wednesday. Refuse containers should be out by 7AM on Wednesday. City Ordinance 965.08 prohibits refuse from being placed out for collection prior to 4:00 PM the day before the scheduled collection day. Empty cans must be removed from the tree lawn within twelve hours after pick-up.
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 www.cuyahogaswd.org.
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
Effective January 1, 2012, the fee for residential solid waste collection was added to the property tax bill as a more simplified method of billing, benefiting our residents by:
- Eliminating the nuisance of quarterly billing and payments
- Automatically ensuring that all Homestead Exemption-qualified residents receive a $1 per month discount
Please note: The Refuse Collection Fee on your property tax bill is for the current year (2013)
