Recycling & Refuse Collection
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 the Public Works office 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 Year's 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.
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. NOTE: All Mattresses and Box Springs MUST BE wrapped in a plastic mattress disposal bag to be collected. Disposal bags can be purchased for under $10 at home improvement stores or from online vendors.
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).
Textile Recycling curbside service by "Simple Recycling"Twinsburg has partnered with Simple Recycling to provide a convenient way to recycle unwanted clothing and shoes, household textiles, etc. that are no longer in good enough condition to donate. Simply fill their designated green collection bag and set it out at your curb on Tuesdays. (Please leave 3' between it and your Waste Management Carts so they aren't confused). When Simple Recycling picks up your bag, they will leave an empty bag for you to use the next time! If you would like extra bags you can call Simple Recycling at 440-591-3879 or they are available for pick up at Public Works and City Hall NOTE: Check out Simple Recycling on Facebook and at www.SimpleRecycling.com for a complete list of accepted items.
