The City of Rocky River will recycle holiday lights at the Service Garage located at 22401 Lake Road. Refuse can containers will be available to recycle holiday lights and will be located by the paper / cardboard recycling bins from January 5, 2016 to January 13, 2016. The lights will be delivered to the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District (see their web site for additional information: http://www.cuyahogaswd.org) for recycling. Holiday lights must be removed from any decoration before being placed in the recycling container.
Thank you for all your efforts to recycle cardboard! It is greatly appreciated because recycling cardboard saves the City landfill costs. The paper and cardboard recycling bins located at the Service Garage and at City Hall have had a spectacular amount of donations which will earn the the City recycling rebates. We especially appreciate those that take the time and extra effort to collapse their boxes before placing them into the bins which leaves ample room for all the generous donations that we have experienced. Thank you!
If you are not able to recycle your cardboard boxes at the bins, you may recycle them in large blue bags available at most grocery and hardware stores. Cardboard placed into a garbage can will be taken to the landfill as refuse. Loose cardboard is not collected due to safety reasons and inefficiencies prone to loose refuse. We appreciate your kind cooperation in this regard.
Please call the City with any questions about recycling or refuse at 440-331-0600. Best wishes for a safe and happy New Year.
