Cleveland Expands Automated Waste Collection and Recycling Program

25,000 households to receive wheeled cans in October, recycling is mandatory

On October 7, 2013, the City of Cleveland will roll out the third phase of a five-year expansion of the Automated Waste Collection and Curbside Recycling Program. Twenty-five thousand households across the city will receive wheeled waste collection carts during the weeks of October 7, 14 and 21 on their regularly scheduled waste collection days. Each delivery will include a booklet explaining cart usage, recycling and waste setout rules.

Households in the selected areas will receive a 95-gallon black cart for garbage and a 65-gallon blue cart for recyclables. Seniors, disabled residents and households of three persons or less can request 48-gallon black and blue carts. All carts are compatible with the City’s automated trash collection trucks and will be provided free of charge.

Recyclable materials

Upon receipt of the carts, residents will be required to place glass, plastic, metal cans, cardboard and mixed paper items into their blue recycle bins; place remaining waste materials into the black bins and roll both carts to the curbside on their regularly scheduled waste collection days. Failure to properly sort waste into recyclables, consistent failure to set out recycling bins and under-utilizing the recycling bins will result in a fine.
