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, 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

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 (2014). 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 $1per month discount.
