Recycling Drop-off Center

Newspaper and magazines are collected only at the Recycling Drop-off Center. Newspapers should be stacked neatly in brown paper bags or loose (ads may be included).  Newspapers are picked up on the 3rd Friday of each month as a service to Senior Citizens who register their name and address with the Service Dept.  Call (216) 731-7014 if you would like your name to be added.

Cardboard can be dropped off at the Service Department for recycling during regular business hours.  All boxes must be broken down flat and no boxes will be accepted that have food residue (ie: pizza boxes).  There is no curbside pickup for cardboard.

Unmixed, used motor oil is accepted at the drop-off center in containers with lids.

Paint and other hazardous household materials are NOT accepted at the drop-off center.  The City of Richmond Heights does participate with the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District in providing several annual recycle round ups.  Check your City Edition for details.  Information regarding round ups is also posted on the community bulletin board at Richmond and Highland Roads.  For direction on disposing of hazardous household materials, contact the CUYAHOGA COUNTY SOLID WASTE DISTRICT at (216) 443-3749.


Compact florescent light bulbs and used household batteries are accepted for recycling at most Home Depot retail stores.  Residents can drop off used UNBROKEN bulbs and/or used batteries at the return/service counter of any Home Depot or Lowe’s store.

To help assist you in recycling a Recycling Drop-off Center is located at the Service Department at 26260 Chardonview Road.  There is an attendant on duty during the drop-off hours to assist you.

Drop-off Center Hours are:
Saturday 9 AM – 1 PM
