Waste Removal - Recycling on Concord Township

This information is offered to aid Concord Township residents in their disposal of household trash, yard waste, leaves, Christmas trees, recyclables, aluminum cans, computers, scrap tires, and household hazardous waste.



Recycling Options

Residents are encouraged to contact their trash hauler to see if curbside recycling options are offered.

The Lake County Solid Waste District offers the use of a single stream drop-off recycling bin. The bin is available to all Lake County residents and businesses Monday-Friday, 7:00 am – 3:30 pm and to Lake County residents only on Saturdays 9:00 am – 1:00 pm, located at the Lake County Landfill, 2039 Blase Nemeth Road in Painesville Township. For more information and a list of acceptable items that can be placed in the bin, please view the Lake County Solid Waste District website or call (440) 350-2644.

All recyclable containers should be emptied and rinsed out prior to collection. In order to maximize space and collection volume, the District asks that residents avoid using plastic bags, to breakdown cardboard boxes, and to loosely place only the permitted recyclable materials into the single stream recycling bin.

Trash Removal

It is the responsibility of each household to properly dispose of its trash. Condominium residents please contact your homeowner’s association (HOA) for information on the disposal options for your neighborhood. All other residents must contract with a hauler to have trash removed from their home.

When contacting trash haulers, be sure to mention the name of your subdivision, as some HOA’s have agreements for specific services from haulers. When making inquiries, you might want to ascertain:

  • How should trash be contained?
  • What day of the week is pick-up?
  • Are there yard waste or recycling options available?

Below are some trash haulers options available to Concord residents and business owners (residents/business owners are not limited to the options below):
