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.

WASTE AND RECYCLING COLLECTION
Household Waste and Recycling Collection is an automated service. New residents must call for garbage & recycle cans (if none are at the home)
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, service is provided on a weekly basis by a private contractor.

Automated Refuse & Recycling Guide
- Residents may recycle plastics numbered 1 through 7
- In addition, cardboard milk, juice, and broth cartons may also be recycled
- We are now accepting Styrofoam! While the service is not offered curbside, residents may bring packaging Styrofoam (formed packing material #6 EPS) to any Saturday Residential Waste Drop-Offs (2nd & 4th Saturday of every month) and to any of our Special Waste Collection Events throughout the year. No loose packing peanuts please - just take them to any UPS store for recycling.
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 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
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.
