Refuse and Recycling Cart Homepage

Because of supply chain issues with the delivery of collection trucks, the automation of Cleveland Heights refuse and recycling has been pushed back to Spring of 2022.

The distribution of trash and recycling bins is also delayed. Once we receive delivery of our automated collection trucks, the date the program begins will be announced.


The new refuse & recycling carts will have two wheels, large handles, and weather resistant lids to help make recycling easier and keep our streets clean.

Each Residential Unit will receive one 96 Gallon Refuse Cart and one 64 Gallon Recycling Cart. Participation in the program is mandatory. The city received a grant for Recycling Carts and one of the grant requirements is that each household must minimally receive a 64 Gallon recycling cart for recycling that is collected on a weekly basis.
