Improving our Recycling Effort

Placing non-approved materials into recycling carts harms recycling efforts in Toledo. One household that puts yard waste or other non-approved material in its recycling cart can contaminate 6-10 tons of carefully prepared recyclables. The whole load can be rejected by the recycling center and wind up in the landfill instead. We need all of our citizens to be mindful in their recycling in order to have an environmentally successful program.

Consumers should call Republic Services at 419-936-2511 with any questions about what belongs in their recycling carts. To recycle other items, check out the Keep Toledo Lucas County Beautiful 2016 Recycling List.
