Olmsted Township actively encourages its residents to recycle.  

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 2017-2018 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 2017-2018 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.
