Elect to Recycle results
The District collected political yard signs for two weeks following the November 5 general election. We collected and recycled 1,250 lbs. of metal, 166 lbs. of coroplast, 219 lbs. of LD (plastic film), and 393 lbs. of SBS (paper board). The materials were recycled by Northcoast Recycling Specialists in Wickliffe.
Holiday lights recycling begins December 2
Help the environment sparkle a little brighter this holiday season! The District will be collecting strings of holiday lights, power strips and power cords at our facility in Garfield Heights from December 2-January 10. Place your broken, burned-out lights in the collection box in our lobby Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. (flyer)
We cannot accept pre-lit trees. Please remove the lights from the tree before recycling.

Cleveland Housing Network conducts waste audit to save money and recycle more
Representatives of the Cleveland Housing Network recently attended the District's "Waste and Recycling $ense for Your Business Workshops." The workshop gave them the idea and tools on how to do a waste audit, which helped them learn where their organization could improve recycling efforts.
District staff also did a walk through audit with them at their main location and will provide a report on their results and some suggestions on who to use for recycling and what to focus on.
To discuss recycling and improved waste management for your business, contact Doreen Schreiber at (216) 443-3732.
