Thursday, May 13, 2021

The next Engage Toledo Drop Off Refuse and Recycling event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, May 15 at Rogers High School.

Additionally, the Toledo Human Relations Commission’s Community and Neighborhoods Committee is hosting a community cleanup in conjunction with the refuse and recycling event. The community cleanup will begin at 9 a.m., also at Rogers High School, 222 McTigue Dr., and move into the neighborhoods around the school. Bags and gloves will be provided by Keep Toledo/Lucas County Beautiful. Masks are required to participate in the cleanup.

Acceptable items for the Engage Toledo Drop Off Refuse and Recycling event include electronic waste; televisions and CRT monitors; 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.

The city has partnered with The Ability Center of Greater Toledo for the event this Saturday, as well as June 19 at Scott High School. Durable medical equipment will be collected by The Ability Center. 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.
