Richmond Heights is a recycling community, and the City encourages its residents to participate. The City provides curbside pick-up of the following recyclable items on the same day as your regular rubbish day. Please place recyclables in the clear or blue plastic recycling bags (sold at several of the city's merchants) apart from your regular rubbish. 
  • Plastic:
    Please rinse out and flatten containers, remove labels, and put caps back on or discard.
  • Glass:
    Bottles and jars of clear, green and brown. Please discard lids, remove label, and rinse out containers.
  • Aluminum/Bi-Metal:
    All containers can be mixed, please remove labels, rinse container and flatten.

Newspaper, magazines, and cardboard are collected only at the Recycling Drop-off Center, located at the Service Department at 26260 Chardonview Road. Newspapers should be stacked neatly in brown paper bags or loose (ads may be included). 

Drop-off Center Hours are: Saturday 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. There is an attendant on duty during the drop-off hours to assist you.
