Why are you automating some recycling routes?
The main reason, in our mind, is our employees. Waste and recycling is one of the top five most dangerous jobs in America today. Because of the physical nature of our business, hopping in and out of a truck all day, bending, twisting and lifting, our drivers suffer injuries all of the time. By going to an automated system, we are investing in and extending the working life of our employees. That is also good news for you. By not having to continually replace your driver with someone not as familiar with your stop, you will see and increased consistency and better all-around service.

In my neighborhood you have gone to every other week automated recycling. I am afraid I will not be able to recycle as much as before.
Studies have proven that if you have a bigger container, people recycle more. Our new containers not only hold more and are much easier to take to the curb. By recycling, we are helping to conserve energy, save our natural resources and reduce waste going into landfills. In this case, more is better.

How will I know if my service will be changing?
Don't worry. We will notify you by mail of any service changes. We will also attach a flyer to your new recycle cart upon arrival, reminding you of the change along with a recycling schedule calendar.

What should I do if I forget my automated recycle pick up day since it goes every other week?
Our automated recycling pickup schedule is based on odd or even weeks of the month. If you do not remember if your pickup week was odd or even, click here to send us an email or call our customer service department at (800) 433-1309 for assistance.

What will you not pick up?

We will not pick up:
  • flammable products
  • oil
  • paint cans
  • tires
  • animal carcasses
  • manure
  • tree stumps
  • dirt
  • stone
  • rock
  • brick
  • lead, acid/wet cell batteries
  • railroad ties
  • toxic materials

Do you take large items and when?
When you call our office 24 hours in advance of your pickup day, we will take some bulk items on your normal trash pickup day. For appliances, metal, or heavy items we will service with a different vehicle. Please call our customer service department at Elyria Hauling office (800) 433-1309 for the schedule of these pickup dates. There is a nominal fee for the special pickup based on the type of item.
