Division of Waste Collection Reminder

  • Using automated waste collection vehicles reduces the exposure to COVID-19 which can remain on various surfaces for a long period of time.  Additionally, social distancing for the safety of crews becomes possible with reducing crew size down to just one driver in many instances. The City of Cleveland has suspended April bulk pick up to protect the workers providing this service.
  • Proper Set-Out Reminder: The City of Cleveland requires all solid waste bagged and in City of Cleveland supplied Black waste containers. Recycling material must be clean and loose in the City of Cleveland provided Blue container. All material must fit within your City of Cleveland provided containers.  Please do not sit loose waste outside of the city provided containers.
  • All eligible residences received waste and recycle containers. If they do not have one, they need to report it stolen, then call waste collection at 216-664-3711. They will provide guidance on how to obtain service and avoid a citation until a new container is obtained. 
  • Regularly scheduled waste collection will occur on Good Friday.
