Munson Township Recycling 

The Munson Township Recycling Center is located at the Vetter Ball Field parking lot to the north of the fire station at 12200 Auburn Road and is open to the public during daylight hours.

Paper and Cardboard. There are twelve yellow and green containers. Four are designated for magazines, newspapers, phone books, office paper, and paperback books [no hardcover books.]. Shredded paper must be bagged in a clear or translucent bag. Bags are not opened to check contents. If Abitibi cannot see through the bag, it will be discarded. Eight containers are located on the opposite side of the parking lot and are labeled for cardboard. Cardboard must be flattened and be free of contaminants such as food, wax paper inserts, cellophane and packing materials. Do not recycle waxed cardboard or pizza boxes. Containers are emptied weekly.

Mixed Recycling: In the large green container recycle:

  1. No. 1 through No. 7 plastic. Look for the number in the triangular symbol on the bottom of the container. Plastic must have the triangular symbol to be recycled.
  2. Clear, brown and green glass
  3. Aluminum and bi-metal cans. Clean aluminum foil. Rinse items, remove and discard lids   and caps. Items may be co-mingled in a plastic bag and the entire bag placed in the container.
  4. Containers are emptied on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

The Geauga Trumbull Solid Waste Management District provides mixed recycling through a grant program. The paper and cardboard recycling is sponsored by ABITIBI. The township receives a percentage rebate for the paper and cardboard from ABITIBI.

Never leave items on the ground.  If you have questions about the recycling program, call the township office 440-286-9255.
