Solid Waste

Cuyahoga County communities manage solid waste by hauling it to a landfill. Residents expect their communities to have programs for waste reduction, recycling, and composting. This is especially challenging at a time of low landfill tipping fees. Communities must find innovative ways to prevent the creation of waste, conserve materials and energy, and develop markets for reuse and recycling.

What Communities Can Do?

  • Benchmark residential recycling services against top performing communities in Cuyahoga County and learn best practices for waste reduction, including automated collection using carts, seasonal yard waste collection, and consistent education programs.
