Preparing Glass, Metal and Plastic for Recycling
In addition to those plastic items listed above, we do NOT accept:
Latex paint is not accepted for recycling. Latex paint must be dried out thoroughly before putting it out with refuse. Mixing kitty litter or a product obtainable in the paint department of hardware or home improvement stores for solidifying paint will help it dry out quicker. The Public Works Department will continue to collect oil-based paints as long as the lids are secured and cans are placed in an open cardboard box.
Used motor oil: If you change your own automobile oil, the City will collect it on your regular collection day. Place the oil in a sealed container (milk jug, 2-liter bottle, etc.) and place it near your recyclables. This oil will be used to heat the vehicle maintenance area of the Public Works garage, thus reducing natural gas costs.
Computers and accessories: Acceptable items include CPU's and monitors, keyboards, mouses, printers, terminals, modems and software. Cell phones are also accepted for recycling. The equipment will be collected curbside or by special prearranged pickups. Televisions are not included in this recycling program. For more information, call the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District at 216-443-3749.
Computer ink cartridges (may be dropped off at City Hall or Service Garage)
Technotrash: Safely recycle items that may contain personal information: old CDs, DVDs, diskettes, audio and video tapes, cell phones, pagers, PDAs, digital cameras, and rechargable batteries. Residents wishing to recycle their unwanted items may bring them to the Technotrash containers located in the Cleveland Heights City Hall atrium, 40 Severance Circle, and at the Community Center, Monticello Boulevard and Mayfield Road. Using this recycling service guarantees complete security and keeps the material out of landfills.
Consider donating unwanted items to local charities. The Cleveland Furniture Bank (216-459-2265) accepts used, but usable furniture (not broken, torn, stained or otherwise damaged). They will pick up from donors at no cost. Visit www.cuyahogaswd.org/publications.htm to download "Pass It On: A Resource-Full Guide to Donating Usable Stuff." You can use the guide to find a home for your unwanted sporting goods, computers, clothing, gardening tools, office equipment, household goods and more.
