The Village has provided each residence with a large, wheeled recycling cart for you to store your acceptable recycling materials and then wheel out to the curb for collection.
Moving your cart to the curb for collection. Always close the lid before moving the cart. Then grab the handle and use the convenient “tilt and go” design feature (between the wheels at the rear of the cart) to tilt the cart back slightly. Now, safely and easily push or pull the cart. It is designed to withstand dragging, but for ease of use, we suggest you tilt and roll.
Placing your cart out for collection. Your cart should be placed out at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on your scheduled collection day (see the calendar of collection dates linked above). Your cart should not be placed out before 7:00 p.m. the night before collection day. Place your cart two (2) feet from the roadway with the handles facing your home and with the lid opening facing the street. Please place your cart approximately three (3) feet from your trash cart to allow for proper servicing. Always keep the lid closed to keep animals, rain, snow, and ice out, and to keep the recyclables and odors in. Place your cart away from obstructions such as mailboxes, utility poles, fire hydrants, and parked cars so it can be easily serviced.
Remove your cart after collection. To help maintain the apperance of our neighborhoods, please remove your cart promptly after materials have been collected. The cart should be stored inside of a garage or in the rear yard of your property. Be careful not to store your cart close to a furnace, fireplace, grill, or other source of heat.
Caring for your cart. Your recycling cart is designed for ease of maintenance. To clean, simply rinse with water periodically and let it dry in sunshine with the lid open. Do not place paints, solvents, acids, gasoline, hot ashes, medical recyclables, exposed needles, sand, soil, rocks, or concrete in your cart.
Chipping Program (April through October)
Chipping of woody materials is offered on the third week of each month starting in April and running through October. The first 15 minutes will be provided without a charge. Any additional time needed for chipping will be charged at a rate of $30 for each 15 min- utes over the allotted time. Place the materials out on driveway apron three (3) days prior to the week of chipping.
Do not place any materials in ditches. Branches must be cut to four (4) foot lengths, stacked in one direction and tied with string. This procedure will allow the Service Department to chip each stack in a most efficient and timely manner. The procedure is also safest in protecting our workers from any injuries. Material that is not neatly bundled will be tagged and cannot be chipped until the requirements are met. The Village cannot chip or dispose of logs greater than 5 in. in diameter, grapevines or thorn bushes, roots, railroad ties, boards, stumps or firewood. You may call Village Hall for wood chips. There will be a $25 delivery fee.
Organic yard waste and clippings are collected on Fridays. Leaves and clippings must be in brown biodegradable recycling bags which are available at any hardware store. Please call (440) 248-1188 to arrange a pick up at least one day prior to Friday. Contractors and landscapers are responsible for all debris they generate. Their debris cannot be hauled away by the Village.
Paints, solvents, oil, household chemicals and tires should not be put in garbage bags or cans. The Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District holds a Household Hazardous Waste round up twice a year. A tire collection is also held once a year. Please refer to the calendar mailed out for the correct dates. All materials can be dropped off at the Moreland Hills Building Department Garage. If you have latex paint, you can fill the cans with kitty litter or air dry; leave them uncovered until they are dry. Then they can be put out with your regular rubbish. Any questions regarding what materials you can or cannot put out for pick up can be answered by calling Waste Management at (800) 343-6047 or The Moreland Hills Service Department at (440) 248-1188.
Computer Roundup and Cellular Phone Collection
Computers can be dropped off at the Building Department Garage during any time of the year. The Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District and Waste Management have select dates where they will do round ups, however we will hold them here on our premises until they come to pick up the collections. If you are a senior citizen or disabled and need someone to perform a pick up from your house, please call the Village Service Department at (440) 248-1188.
