Recycling Program

While curbside recycling in Cuyahoga Heights is a voluntary program, we strongly encourage residents to recycle. The Village provides special recycling containers at no cost. To participate, residents need to place all recycling materials in their blue recycling containers. These containers will be picked up on Monday each week. In case of a holiday, containers will be picked up on the Tuesday following the holiday. For more information about recycling, please download our brochure.

The cost for use of a Village dumpster shall be $30.00 per load. Any resident requesting the use of a Village dumpster must first contact the Service Director to request use and to specify date and time. The resident must then pay $30.00 to the Village CFO, Angel Meriwether, during regular working hours prior to the dumpster being delivered. The receipt must be presented to the Service Department driver before the truck is left on the resident’s property. The Village dumpster is for use by residents only. If possible, the resident should be present when the truck is delivered, or parking will be left to the discretion of the Service Department. Use of the Village dumpster is for a maximum of two (2) weeks. After two (2) weeks, the dumpster will be picked up from the resident’s home. If the resident needs to use it again, he/she will go back on the waiting list.

Residential Snow Removal Program

All Village roadways will be plowed first and maintained prior to any driveways being plowed.

Once the Service Director feels that the roadways and municipal buildings have been maintained, the driveways of our senior citizens will be plowed (using the same criteria that applies to our grass cutting service).

Afterwards, taking into consideration manpower, time and safety issues the Village will help residents with their driveways in the event of a storm that produces more than 2-4 inches of snow at the resident’s request.

All residents must have driveway markers in place in order to allow the Service Department to plow their driveway.  The Village will provide markers and place them for all seniors who qualify for the “grass cutting program.” Residents with shorter driveways need 4 markers in place, and long driveways must have 6 markers. They need to be placed at the beginning, middle (if long drive), and at the end of your drive. If you wish to purchase markers from the Village for $1 each, please stop at the Service Department.

Contact Service Director, David Sammons at (216) 641-3505 if you have any questions.

Please note that residents are responsible to clean their driveway aprons, as it is difficult to plow them over again after the streets are plowed. Each homeowner and/or resident must have a waiver of liability on file at our Service Department. If you already have filled out a waiver of liability and there have been no changes to it, there will be no need to fill out a new one.
