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.

Yes! Cartons are recyclable!

Great news! All of our local materials recovery facilities (MRFs aka. recycling plants), including Kimble, Republic, Rumpke, and Waste Management, now accept cartons for recycling!

The last drop of milk, juice or soup does not mark the end of a carton’s useful life. Made mainly from high-quality paper, cartons are easily recyclable and in high demand by manufacturers of recycled products. Your residents can simply place their empty cartons in the recycling along with their plastic, metal and glass containers.

After cartons are collected curbside, they are taken to a MRF to be sorted and baled. The bales of recycled cartons are then shipped to paper mills, where cartons are mixed with water in a gigantic blender to extract all the paper fiber. These recycled carton paper fibers are a valuable resource for making products such as recycled paper products and even building materials.

Please inform your residents that cartons can now be included in their recycling. For more information on how cartons are recycled, visit

Low prices for metal affect appliance recycling

Recently, it has been brought to our attention that some cities are having the appliances they’ve collected from residents be turned away at scrap metal recyclers. We’ve since learned that market prices for scrap metal are poor, and the scrap recyclers are unwilling to evacuate Freon from the appliances and pay rebates.

Please be aware that the low prices in the metal markets will affect what you will be paid for scrap metal. You may also have to pay for Freon evacuation from those types of appliances. Cities should check with their recycler for details before making a delivery.

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.

Residents should include phone books in with their mixed paper recycling.  Please make sure to update your website, newsletters, and other information you provide to residents and the public.
