What do I do with...? Where Can I...? How Do I...?

What's the deal with recycling in Cuyahoga County?

The items that can go in your bin (cans, glass, plastics, paper) is determined by the facility that your recycling is hauled to. Whether your recycling is picked up by your city or a private company, recyclables from Cuyahoga County go to one of three material recovery facilities (MRFs) in the area. See who picks up your recycling and where it goes.
