Refuse /Recycle Collection Guidelines
Weekly collection service DOES NOT include construction or demolition debris, tires, batteries, automotive/truck parts, paint, oil fluorescent bulbs, gas cans, hazardous/infectious waste, flammable liquids, and any waste prohibited from disposal in a solid waste landfill. (Call Reworks, formerly the Summit/Akron Solid Waste Management Authority, for information on disposal of these items: 330-374-0383 or visit Reworks website).
Please have refuse and recyclables at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on your scheduled pick-up day. Items such as swing sets, carpet, tree limbs, gutter and down spouts must be cut into 36 inches or less, bundled, weigh less than 50 lbs. and placed at the curbside on a regular pick-up day.
Leaves and yard waste will also be picked up with the trash, however, residents are encouraged to recycle leaf and yard waste through the City of Green's Recycle Center located at 5383 Massillon Road (City Recycle web-site link). This reduces the amount of material being disposed of in the landfill, and also provides material for the City's free mulch program provided to residents.
Co-mingled recyclables (#1-#7 plastics, glass, jar/bottles, aluminum cans, bi-metal cans) must be placed in your 18-gallon bin, and your fiber (newspaper, magazines, telephone books, and cardboard) should be tied and bundled, or placed in a brown paper bag, and set on top of or next to your recycling bin.
If you have other questions please contact Kimble at 1-800-201-0005 of the Department of Public Service at 330-896-4176
