CURBSIDE RECYCLING IN MAYFIELD VILLAGE
Kimble Co. provides weekly curbside recycling for village residents. Combine cans, cartons, glass, paper and boxes plus plastic bottles and jugs loose (unbagged) in the provided 65 gallon tote. Recyclables are picked-up on the same day as the solid waste, by a separate truck. Nothing needs to be separated or tied.
Combine the following five core items in your curbside recycling container. Do not bag them. No other items should be placed in your recycling. And when in doubt, throw it out.
The CORE ITEMS:
- CANS: Empty and rinse.
- CARTONS: Empty and rinse. Replace the cap — it’s too small to be recycled by itself!
- GLASS: Empty and rinse.
- PAPER & BOXES: Flatten cardboard items, like cereal boxes, to save space.
- PLASTIC BOTTLES & JUGS: Empty and rinse. Replace the cap.
Fluorescent Bulb Recycling
Residents can recycle CFL bulbs (small, twisty bulbs) for free at any Home Depot or Lowe’s store. Other types of bulbs, including fluorescent tubes, can be recycled at any Batteries+Bulbs retail location. See http://www.cuyahogarecycles.org/fluorescent_bulbs
PROPER DISPOSAL OF LATEX PAINT
Latex and any other water-based paint are not hazardous materials, and are not accepted as part of the drop-off disposal program. Latex paint should be dried out and disposed of in the regular rubbish. Step by step instructions on how to dry out latex paint is available at www.cuyahogarecycles.org/latex_paint
So many of us still have questions regarding what can be recycled. If you would like more information, the county is offering 4 webinars to help clarify what can be put in the tote. The following link has the dates and times: https://cuyahogarecycles.org/recycling_presentations
