Recycling & Refuse Collection

Waste Collection Guidelines

Residents of Twinsburg City receive weekly curbside trash and recycling collection on Tuesday.

Trash and recycling is collected with trucks using automated arms, so it's important that residents place their trash cart at least 3 feet from any obstacles like cars, trees or your mailbox.

Your trash and recycle cart must be at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on collection day to ensure pickup.

•  Bag and tie your trash inside the 96-gallon cart.

•  Yard waste should be bagged or bundled and placed inside the waste cart – you can also     
   place up 
to 4 bags of additional trash adjacent to your cart on you collection day.

•  Minimize any items outside the cart - always fill your cart first.

For an additional trash or recycle cart, please call
WM at (866) 797-9018.

The cost for an additional cart is $4/month billed annually - $48.
The City of Twinsburg is unable to process additional container requests.

If you would like to switch your trash cart to a smaller 64-gallon container or if you are new to the City and do not have a trash or recycle cart, please contact Twinsburg City Hall
at (330) 425-7161.
