Styrofoam Recycling Discontinued at Community Center
Cleveland Heights has been informed by CuyahogaRecycles that they will no longer be picking up or disposing of Styrofoam from the Community Center drop-off station. It will also not be picked up in curbside recycling. These items are no longer recyclable and should be disposed of in the regular trash.
Tetra Packs are recyclable, provided that they are be rinsed of all food residue and do not contain metallic layers such as aluminum which are found as:
Part of an inside lining
Sandwiched between the waxed surfaces of frozen food and some juice boxes
Car batteries are collected on regular collection days and recycled.
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.
As with used motor oil, place used cooking oil in a sealed container (milk jug, 2-liter bottle, etc.) and place it near your recyclables.
