Join the Recycling Committee!
Recycling Committee Meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month at 7:00pm at the South Euclid Community Center – 1370 Victory Drive.
Come and see what we’re all about!

The South Euclid Recycling Committee presents “Use This, Not That.” Here are five easy item switches you can make to reduce waste:

1) Use cloth napkins instead of paper napkins
2) Use reusable grocery bags instead of plastic grocery bags
3) Use a refillable water bottle instead of disposable water bottles
4) Use a reusable sandwich container instead of plastic sandwich bags
5) Use CFL or LED light bulbs instead of incandescent bulbs

Check back for more helpful suggestions in the coming weeks.

Giant Eagle’s plastic bag recycling program

As a reminder, Giant Eagle’s plastic bag recycling program encompasses a number of items besides plastic bags.  Customers can return their clean, dry plastic grocery bags from any grocer, pharmacy, store, etc. to the designated bins at Giant Eagle.  Plastic bags accepted have a number two (#2) or number four (#4) on the bottom or side of the bag.  The bins also accept clear shrink wrap and stretch film plastic like you would find over cases of bottled water, paper towels, and toilet paper, clean and dry plastic produce bags, plastic newspaper sleeves, dry cleaner bags, and those plastic pillows from packing if they are deflated.  If they are clean and dry, bags from items like bread and potatoes are acceptable.

Items not accepted in these plastic bag bins are bubble wrap, paper, glass, metal, trash, hard or rigid plastic, food or chemical contaminated bags, and black or dark colored (PVC) bags.   The recyclable plastic collected is turned into composite building materials such as decking or railing.


Television recycling is not a free service in Cuyahoga County.  While there is no ban in Ohio on placing televisions and electronics in the regular trash, there are retailers and local companies that offer recycling services for these items.  A fee is usually charged for this service.  Best Buy stores will recycle your old television (up to 32”) for a $25 fee.  For more information, log onto

Recycling kiosks

Every Best Buy store has a free kiosk, just inside the door, for you to drop off inkjet cartridges, rechargeable batteries, cell phones, CDs/DVDs, PDAs, smartphones and Best Buy gift cards.

Shred-It has a community event at their office the first Saturday of each month for anyone.  The cost is $4.00 per box or bag of records brought in. They are located at 5480 Cloverleaf Parkway, Suite 7, Valley View, Ohio 44125.

We are proud to live in one of the few cities in the Cleveland area to have an active, dedicated, volunteer Recycling Committee.
Recycling programs vary from city to city! They also change based on materials supply and demand.

This information for South Euclid is as current as we are able to know and make it…but sometimes things slip between the cracks. If there are confusions, we invite you to contact us so we can try to correct them!

We invite you to learn more about our city’s recycling program and join the effort to reduce landfill waste, protect and improve our community, and reduce our city’s service expenses.
