The City of Twinsburg has a contract with Waste Management for residential waste and recycling collection services, and they provide residents with containers for trash and curbside recycling at no cost to the residents. Collection is every Tuesday between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. To ensure pick up, please have your containers curbside by 7 a.m. on Tuesdays, but preferably not before 6 p.m. on the evening prior. Contact Public Works to request refuse and recycling carts. Remember to place the carts at least 3 feet apart from each other and mailboxes, trees, etc. to allow for the automated trucks to empty them. Position each cart so that the wheels are on the side closest to your home.
The 6 holidays Waste Management honors are New Years Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. If your service day falls on 1 of these 6 holidays or the day after, you will be serviced 1 day later on Wednesday. For more information or for customer service, contact Twinsburg Public Works at 330-963-6212.
Waste Management will pick up 1 large item a week (i.e., furniture, mattress, appliance, TV, etc.). Residents are instructed to put the item out next to your trash and recycle containers, and Waste Management will come around at the end of the day and pick up those items with a special truck. Any other large discarded items should be broken down into 4 foot lengths or less and no heavier than 25 pounds, including wood which also needs to have the nails removed or safely bent over. Carpet needs to be rolled and bundled in addition to be cut into 4' lengths or less to ensure pickup.
Residents are encouraged to compost. However, 6 bags of yard waste are permitted per week. Place the bags into your trash carts first, then the extra can be placed next to your trash cart.
Large recycling bins are also available for residential use in Twinsburg. This may be the best way to handle larger items such as moving boxes. Please break down corrugated boxes before putting into bins. The bins are permanently located at 10260 Ravenna Road (behind the school buses next to Chamberlin Middle School).
