First 2021 Engage Toledo Drop Off Refuse and Recycling Event This Saturday

Thursday, April 22, 2021

The first Engage Toledo Drop Off Refuse and Recycling event of the year is 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Saturday, April 24 at the Toledo Zoo.

The event is part of the zoo’s “Party for the Planet.”

Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz announced earlier this month that there would be 23 free refuse and recycling drop off events throughout the city this year – a significant increase from previous years.

Acceptable items include electronic waste; up to 10 tires, on or off the rim, but no commercial tires; documents; houseware goods; clothing; toys; bulky items, and refuse. Latex paint will be accepted for $1 per gallon. Major appliances will not be accepted.

For the first time, the city will accept televisions and CRT monitors at all drop off refuse and recycling events.

Additionally, the city has partnered with The Ability Center of Greater Toledo for the event this Saturday, as well as May 15 at Rogers High School and June 19 at Scott High School. Durable medical equipment will be collected by The Ability Center on those three dates. A list of accepted items can be found at this link. The items will be sanitized by Ability Center staff and given to individuals with disabilities.

The times for each event this year vary, which is new compared to previous years. There will be visibly marked lanes for traffic flow, as well as volunteers in identifiable clothing who will help direct participants to appropriate locations. Residents should follow all signs and directions. For questions, call Engage Toledo at 419-936-2020 or visit the Engage Toledo website at toledo.oh.gov/engage-toledo.
