What belongs in your curbside recycling bin?

Recycle Right

Most of us are guilty of putting something in our curbside recycling bins that actually belongs in the trash. There are a few things to remember when determining whether something belongs in your recycling bin, in the trash or whether there is an alternative way to have it recycled. 

Shannon of the Westlake Service Department offers a clear overview of what can and cannot be recycled (and why) in a short PSA video available on the "Recycling" page on the City's website and for video-on-demand streaming via the Westlake Community Access Channel.

Each Rumpke recycling cart issued by the City of Westlake includes a sticker that shows a list of the five categories of recyclables accepted as part of the City's Curbside Recycling Program. You may also find information about recycling in Cuyahoga County by visiting
