Collection and Removal
Shaker’s beauty is enhanced by the regular collection of residential yard waste, garbage and recycling. Friendly and welcoming neighborhoods are free of unsightly trash because most collections are made from back and side yards.
Service Center: 15600 Chagrin Blvd.
- Garbage must be bagged or wrapped and then placed inside rigid containers with tight-fitting lids.
- On regular collection day, all waste must be:
- kept in containers;
- placed in front of garage door or at corner of house, on driveway.
- Do not store any other materials within 4-feet of the container area.
- Containers must be outside of enclosures and fences.
- Maximum 10 garbage bags per household per refuse pickup.
- Maximum 10 flattened boxes per household per refuse pickup.
- Containers must be galvanized or plastic weather-resistant, not to exceed 32 gallons in capacity or 40 pounds filled weight.
- Containers must be maintained in sanitary condition at all times.
- Garbage and recycling materials are collected once a week. Visit ShakeRecycles or contact the Public Works Department 216-491-1490 to learn the collection day for your street.
- If pick-up from your house is missed, call 216-491-1490 within 24 hours of your regular pick-up day, or request collection the next day. Reporting a rubbish miss later than 24 hours after your regular day results in pick-up the following week.
- During winter, keep driveways clear enough for vehicles to enter. Collection may be delayed a day following a major snowstorm.
- Clear driveways of parked cars by 7:00 AM so rubbish is visible and scooters can enter.
- Refuse must be in place by 7:00 AM.
