Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District Round-Ups

The Solid Waste District holds round-ups every year for the purpose of recycling items that would otherwise be placed in a landfill, and to assist communities with disposing of materials that are restricted from landfills.  Round-up dates will be announced in the Service Department newsletters.  All round-up items may either be dropped off at the Service Department, or collected with a Friday Special Pick-up, during the round-up dates.

  • Old Computer Round-Up:  Held twice a year. Items that may be included are CPU's, monitors, keyboards, and software.  Computers and related equipment will either be refurbished and donated to local schools, or disassembled and the individual parts will be recycled.
  • Scrap Tire Round-Up:  Held once a year. Tires are restricted from landfills, therefore the District round-up is the ONLY means of disposal for tires. Tires of all sizes are acceptable. Tires must be off the rims.
  • Household Hazardous Waste (HHW):  The City will accept items on the last Friday of every month, during the hours of 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.  Bring your items to the Service Department in rigid, puncture resistant containers with tight-fitting lids, preferably the original containers. DO NOT mix chemicals together in the same container. Residents may also schedule to have HHW collected on the last Friday of any month. Items must be in boxes, with the box lids open, weighing less than 40 pounds. Contact the Service Department before 3:00 p.m. on a Thursday to schedule a Friday Special Pick-up for HHW.
