Recycling is as easy as A, B, C!
The City of Cuyahoga Falls encourages all residents and businesses to recycle whenever possible. Not only does it help the environment, but it saves money, too!
Aluminum, bi-metal, tin food and beverage cans and plastic bottles, newspapers and magazines, junk mail, phone books, and other paper products should be stored together (co-mingled) loose in the blue-lidded recycle cart provided to you free of charge. Corrugated cardboard may also be recycled in the blue-lidded cart, but styrofoam and other non-cardboard packing material should be removed and placed with regular trash. All recycle items must be placed INSIDE the blue-lidded recycle cart, no plastic bags of any kind are to be used.
Curbside Collection of Corrugated Cardboard: Cardboard collected curbside must be flattened and/or cut up, and placed in the blue-lidded recycle cart with the lid closed. All packing materials (Styrofoam, etc.) must be removed and placed with regular trash.
The blue-lidded recycle cart, along with your trash cart, should be placed curbside by 7:00 a.m. on the same day as your regular trash service, and at least three feet from any other cart or obstruction.
Note: There is a $30 charge for items other than recyclables in your recycle cart (ex. yard waste, trash, etc.).
