The City of Cleveland Heights provides weekly curbside recycling for city residents. Combine paper, cardboard, cans, cartons, glass and plastic jugs and bottles in see-through (clear or blue) recycling bags.

If using grocery store blue plastic bags, tie the bag handles together. Place the bag on your tree lawn on your regular collection day. Recycling should be placed a couple feet away from the trash to ensure that the driver recognizes which bags are recyclables.

The Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District offers a recycling and disposal search engine for all residents of Cuyahoga County. Find answers to your recycling, disposal and reuse questions by using the “What Do I Do With?” search bar located at the top of every page of at

Preparing Your Curbside Recycling

  • Commingle all items together in the same see-through (clear or blue) recycling bag.
  • Paper DOES NOT NEED TO BE separate from "blue bag" recyclables (plastic, metal and glass). Can be packed in tightly in kraft paper bags or tied with string.
  • Corrugated cardboard should be flattened and tied into bundles or put into a box no larger than two feet by two feet; maximum weight 30 pounds.
