Residential Collection Programs

An automated waste-collection program has begun for Cleveland residents. The new system is significantly more efficient and user-friendly, and should encourage more participation in recycling, since items can be recycled curbside.

Through this program, residents receive sturdy garbage carts for trash and recycling which can be wheeled to the curb. The program will also allow Clevelanders to recycle yard waste including grass clippings and branches.  -more
