Elect to Recycle Campaign Signs!
The Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District wants YOU to recycle your campaign signs. With the presidential election only weeks away, we’re looking forward to collecting unwanted campaign yard signs for recycling into new and usable consumer goods.
Go ahead, celebrate your candidates’ wins or cry over their losses! Either way, you can recycle your campaign yard signs – plastic film, corrugated plastic, and paper signs plus the metal stands – at the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District, 4750 East 131st Street in Garfield Heights. Hours are Mon.-Fri. from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Collection dates are from November 4, 2020, to November 20, 2020.
The District is a non-partisan recycler. We encourage all Cuyahoga County residents, candidates, elected officials, and ward clubs to round up and drop-off election signs so we can keep them out of landfills.
The signs will be recycled by Northcoast Recycling Specialists in Wickliffe. Unwanted campaign yard signs are processed and recycled into paper towels, toilet paper, mailing crates, and metal products. By recycling your campaign signs, you are casting a vote for the environment. When we recycle, everybody wins!
The District has been collecting campaign signs since the 2012 general election. Cuyahoga County residents should check with their local ward club or city service department to see if there is a collection near them.
