Saturday, July 30, 2022 CLEVELAND, Ohio The City of Cleveland is extending the open enrollment period to sign up for the curbside recycling program. Residents can register for the program by visiting or by calling (216) 664-3030.

Recyclables must be placed in blue bins that are properly labeled with recycling stickers. Enrolled households will receive stickers and instructions in the mail along with a recycling program welcome packet. Pictured is Cleveland Matyor Justin Bibb

Properly labeled blue bins with enrollment stickers on the top and sides will be picked up as recycling by City of Cleveland crews on residents' regular trash collection day. Unlabeled blue bins will continue to be collected as trash.

"We have extended the sign-up deadline to get as many households enrolled as possible," said Mayor Justin M. Bibb, a change agent mayor who took office in January. "I hope residents will join us in this effort to reduce landfill waste."

No further action is needed from the 42,000 households enrolled in the program to date. Welcome packets and enrollment stickers have been delivered or are currently in the mail for all households enrolled on or before July 23, 2022.

What is the difference between trash and recycling? Trash refers to the material that is thrown away as worthless. Recycling programs help weed out potentially useful items that may have once been considered trash to turn in to useful products. Recycling is designed to conserve energy, reduce air and water pollution, reduce landfill waste and greenhouse gases, and conserve natural resources.

In the first month of the program, the City of Cleveland recycled 167 tons of material—enough to fill 14 semi-trailers. These materials stay local and are quickly turned into new products—aluminum cans within 60 days; glass bottles within 30 days; and cardboard boxes within two weeks.

Thanks to the diligence of residents enrolled in the program, the rate of contamination in the city's recycling has been very low. This bodes well for the future success of Cleveland's recycling program.
