As of January 12, 2015 in an effort to create greater efficiencies in the refuse collection system, the City of Rocky River will only collect cardboard for recycling if it is placed in a blue bag on your regularly scheduled refuse day. Cardboard that is loose near your refuse (not in a blue bag) will not be collected. Cardboard may be taken to the Service Garage at 22401 Lake Road or to City Hall (21012 Hilliard Blvd. – between the Senior Center and Civic Center) and recycled in the River Valley yellow and green bins. The Fairview Hospital Wellness Center (3035 Wooster Rd.) will also accept cardboard in a new River Valley bin easily accessible by their south driveway. Each River Valley (green and yellow) bin will accept cardboard and all paper (included shredded paper).
The City will continue efforts to place more bins throughout the City in order to offer convenience for everyone’s cardboard and all paper recycling needs.
