Commercial Recycling Program
The City of Cleveland offers a commercial waste collection service, which is professional, reliable and affordable. In addition to providing services to public facilities such as Burke Lakefront Airport, Cleveland Convention Center, West Side Market, and public utilities, the Division of Waste Collection and Disposal works with several local businesses, including restaurants, churches, manufacturers, and contractors.
The Mandatory Automated Waste Collection program represents a significant step in Cleveland to encourage more participation in recycling. Through this program, residents receive sturdy garbage carts for trash and recycling, which are wheeled to the curb for weekly pick-up. The program is expanding in stages, and will eventually be city-wide. Residents receive postcards and brochures regarding the program prior to receiving new carts. Normally scheduled pick-up dates are not affected.
Even if they do not currently have curbside pickup, residents can still recycle at more than 90 drop-off recycling locations throughout the city. These drop-off sites are for everyone, not just Cleveland residents.
Additional recycling information can be found on the Recycling and Waste Disposal Guide.
