CARDBOARD IS RECYCLABLE!
The City of Solon would like to take this opportunity to let you know that….
Cardboard is the most under recycled item the Service Department collects weekly. Let’s change that statistic now! Please break down all your cardboard boxes & place them in your automated recycling cart for collection. Please place the automated cart on your curb on the opposite side of your rubbish container for collection.

Styrofoam & film plastics should not be put in your recycling!

The City of Solon would also like to notify you that .....
Styrofoam is considered a contaminate in our single stream recycling program. Styrofoam should be placed in the rubbish. If you desire to recycle film plastic such as grocery bags, some area grocery stores recycle them. Some even recycle Styrofoam. Check with your local grocery store to see if they participate.
