Single Stream Recycling

Solon Recycles!!
The City of Solon is proud to offer Single Stream Recycling to all of its residents!
Single stream recycling gives residents the ability to conveniently combine all primary recyclables into 1 automated recycling cart. Recyclables are picked up on your normal rubbish day and placed on the opposite side of your driveway from your regular rubbish. The following is a list of Primary Recyclables:
  • Plastics #s 1 through 7 (look for the recycling emblem on the bottom of the container with the numbers 1 through 7 in the middle of it).

  • Food glass which is clear, green or brown. (No window, drinking glass, mirror or decorative glass should be included).
  • Aluminum or tin cans
  • Paper which includes office paper, junk mail, magazines, newspapers, cereal and food boxes and waxed food containers EXCEPT for juice boxes or greasy pizza boxes.
  • Cardboard. This means any box you may have from food boxes to appliance boxes. Please break down boxes and either bundle the flattened cardboard or pile the broken down cardboard into another cardboard box for pick up.

As always, the Solon Service Department is open between 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to drop off any recyclables Monday through Friday. Please feel free to call this department at (440) 248-5834 or
