*Recycling update 2021: PLASTIC TUBS
Some of you may be aware that a few of our surrounding communities are accepting plastic tubs again in their curbside recycling bins. These communities include Gates Mills, Hunting Valley, Bentleyville, and Woodmere. These communities are NOT Kimble customers.
Moreland Hills’ curbside recycling is serviced by Kimble Recycling and Disposal, Inc. They provide recycling services to half of Cuyahoga County. Unfortunately, Kimble is unable to collect plastic tubs at this time. The ability to recycle these items is dependent on the facilities 'ability to process and sell these plastics. Please continue to leave plastic containers such as butter/margarine, sour cream, fruit and yogurt cups, out of your curbside recycle carts.
