UPDATED KIMBLE COVID-19 Response Plan to South Euclid Residents – April 27, 2020 (pdf) 


The City will pick-up yard waste from your tree lawn from April 1st through October 31st. 


Yard waste consists of grass, hedge trimmings, garden debris and leaves outside the fall vacuum period. These items must be placed in a brown paper lawn bag.
Small tree trimmings must be cut, tied and bundled in 4 foot and under sections and not weighing more than 40 pounds. Yard waste will not be picked up if it contains any of the following; plastic, metal, dirt, rock, sod or any other rubbish.

The Service Department picks up your leaves by vacuum in the Fall only and must be left loose on the tree lawn and not contaminated with sticks, grass, perennials, trash or any other foreign material. Anything other than leaves damages the leaf vacuum machines and causes delays.

KIMBLE will pick-up yard waste from your tree lawn from November 1st. through March 31st.

Garbage & Recycling are delayed, one day, for the following holidays :

New Years Day
Memorial Day
4th of July (NO DELAY in 2020 – the holiday is on Saturday)

The Solid Waste District is no longer accepting Styrofoam at our facilityDo not place these in your curbside recycling. Food grade Styrofoam “clamshell” containers, cups and trays cannot be recycled in Northeast Ohio. These items should be disposed of in the regular trash. 

Cleveland-area Heinen’s grocery stores discontinued the collection of Styrofoam food trays for recycling and they are no longer accepted at their stores.

Learn more about Styrofoam Blocks and Packing Peanuts.

Are you a business? Businesses, restaurants and the food industry have limited recycling options for Styrofoam food trays, containers and cups. See a list in our Business Recycling Directory.

We’ve learned that all Blue Rhino locations offer a free recycling program for 20# grill tanks. Residents can recycle their unwanted 20# grill tanks by writing “RECYCLE” on the tank and taking it to any Blue Rhino location. Blue Rhino collects the unwanted tanks for refurbishment or recycling. Blue Rhino will accept any standard 20# grill tank, including non-Rhino brands. Please encourage your residents to use this free retailer recycling program. See more at

Cuyahoga County Solid Waste is no longer accepting fluorescent light bulbs.  We will no longer accept them at the Service Garage. Home Depot and Lowes’s will accept them. Do not place bulbs, including fluorescent, incandescent, LED or HID, in your curbside recycling. 

Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and other energy-efficient lighting such as fluorescent tube lamps and high intensity discharge (HID) lamps contain a very small amount of mercury. All fluorescent bulbs and ballasts should be recycled properly to protect public health and the environment.

Compact fluorescent bulbs (the small, twisty CFLs) can be recycled for free at Lowe’s retail locations. Look for a drop box near the main entrance or customer service desk.

Batteries+Bulbs retail stores will accept and recycle all types of bulbs and ballasts, including fluorescent tubes. Stores are located in Macedonia, Mayfield Heights, North Olmsted, Parma and Strongsville. A small fee may apply. See details.

The Solid Waste District does not accept any type of bulb for disposal, including fluorescent lamps.

Businesses must contract with a licensed environmental services company for proper disposal or recycling of fluorescent bulbs and ballasts. See our Business Recycling Directory

Just a reminder that the Solid Waste District eliminated the annual Phone Book Recycling Campaign program in 2013.  After 25 years of operation, the program was no longer needed and has been phased out.  The District’s phone book recycling bins will no longer be located in the Cleveland Metroparks or at any other location. Also, phone books can also be recycled at a local Paper Retriever bin or River Valley recycling bin Typically, these mixed paper drop off bins can be found in school or church parking lots.

Residents should put phone books in with their recycling cart.

The South Euclid Service Department has a broad range of responsibilities that affect everyday life in the city. Snow removal, leaf collection, street patching, park and pool maintenance, tree lawn tree trimming and removal are some of these responsibilities. As part of the services of the Service Department, we will take care of exterior (outside of the home) skunk and raccoon problems. Please contact us at our e-mail address (below) with any questions or concerns.

Disposal of Latex Paint

Residents are asked to remove the lids and throw them away.  Whether the paint is hardened or liquid, fill with Kitty Litter all the way to the top (it will automatically absorb).  Once this is accomplished you can put your cans out on the tree lawn next to your regular garbage. Please leave the lids off.
