Recycling & Refuse Collection

Curbside collection is every Tuesday between the hours of 7:00AM and 7:00PM.  To ensure pick up please have your containers to the curb by 7AM on Tuesdays and preferably not before 5PM on Monday evening.  Remember to leave at least 3 feet between the containers and mailboxes, trees etc. to allow Waste Management's automated trucks to safely empty them.  Also position the carts so that the wheels are on the side closest to your home.  NOTE: (1) Trash cart and (1) recycling cart are provided to residents at no cost and can be requested by calling Public Works.

Holiday Schedule for Trash/Refuse  
The 5 holidays Waste Management honors are New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, and Christmas. If the holiday occurs on a Monday or Tuesday, Twinsburg will be serviced 1 day later - on Wednesday!

Large Items

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 Couches, Mattresses and Box Springs MUST BE wrapped in a plastic disposal bag to be collected.  Disposal bags can be purchased for under $20 at home improvement stores or from online vendors. 

Grass Clippings

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. NOTE* If the trash cart is not used first, the additional items will be tagged and will not be collected.

Recycling Center

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 for a complete list of accepted items.
