Did you know that in 2015, Olmsted Township recycled over 800 tons of recyclable materials and that over 700 tons of yard waste was composted? This was a result of resident participation in the curbside recycling component of Republic Waste’s weekly refuse collection. Curbside recycling includes the pickup of aluminum, steel/bi-metal cans, plastic, glass and newspaper items. (See the Republic Services link below for details.)
Additional drop-off recycling for computers, hazardous household waste, scrap tires and phone books is available to residents at various times throughout the year. (See the 2017 Drop-Off Recycling Program link below for details.) Olmsted Township works in conjunction with the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste Management District to offer these additional recycling opportunities. What a great option for the many materials we no longer need or use!
Finally, the Olmsted Township Department of Public Service also makes bulk drop-off available to residents during certain months of the year. (See the 2017 Drop-Off Recycling Program link below for details.)
The Department of Public Service hopes to see ever-increasing levels of local involvement by the Township in years ahead. We welcome any suggestions that would improve these efforts and make recycling a success for everyone!
If you have any recycling questions or need further information, please call the Service Department at 440-235-1011.
