Olmsted Township actively encourages its residents to recycle.

Not sure what to do with something?   Visit here:  “What do I do with?” .

In 2019 Olmsted Township recycled over 1000 tons of recyclable materials and over 600 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 or click here)


Additional recycling drop-off options for computers, hazardous household waste, scrap tires and phone books is available to residents at various times throughout the year.  Drop-off at our Public Service Department, 7924 Fitch Road on the first Saturday of each month from 8am – noon and the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month from 7am – 2pm. This service is provided to residents of Olmsted Township only. Click here for more information. 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!

The Public Service Department 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
