Richmond Heights is a recycling community, and the City encourages its residents to participate. The City picks up recycling items curbside on the same day as your regular rubbish day. Be sure to place your recycling bags apart from your regular rubbish, in the clear or blue plastic recycling bags which are sold at several of the city's merchants. Please separate your recycling items into individual bags:
  • Plastic:
    Please discard caps, remove labels, and rinse out and flatten containers.
  • Glass:
    Bottles and jars of clear, green and brown can be mixed together in same bag. Please discard lids, remove label, and rinse out containers.
  • Aluminum/Bi-Metal:
    All containers can be mixed, please remove labels, rinse container and flatten.

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 a.m. - 1 p.m.

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 put their name and address on a list at city hall. Call (216) 486-2474 if you would like your name to be added.

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. For direction on disposing of hazardous household materials, contact the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District at (216) 443-3749.
