Message from Mayor Kleem

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the Shred Fest and Electronics Roundup on July 22. You filled two shredding trucks before noon and the electronics truck was filled before 3 p.m.

A big thank you to the Rotary Club of Berea for co-sponsoring and staffing this event and to the BW students who helped with the heavy lifting.

We’re going to do it all again on Sept. 15-16. This time the Shred Fest and Electronics Roundup will be combined with the semi-annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection.

This combined event will be at the Berea Service Garage on Barrett Road and will run from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. both days. The Shred Fest, however, will run only from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday.

Hazardous waste such as pool chemicals and fertilizer do not belong in the trash. They require special disposal. This summer, there have been stories in the news about fires on trash trucks brought about by flammable materials.

Hazardous waste collected by Berea will be taken to the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District for safe disposal.

Rechargeable batteries, such as lithium ion or nickel cadmium, found in cell phones, laptops and power tools can be recycled free at any Call2Recycle drop box. For a list of locations, visit

Remember, the more we recycle the less ends up in a landfill or polluting our soil and water.

In the Spotlight



Republic Services will pick up yard waste at curbside in Berea beginning on April 21 and continuing through Dec. 1.

Grass clippings, leaves and other yard waste should be placed in brown paper yard waste bags, which are available at discount, drug and hardware stores. Yard waste also can be placed in specially marked garbage cans. The bags and cans should not weigh more than 40 pounds when fully loaded. The yard waste will be recycled.

Yard waste in plastic bags should be placed in the blue trash container. Yard debris in plastic bags will not be recycled but will be placed in a landfill.


Leaves should not be raked to the curb.

Cut small branches to no more than 4 feet in length and bundle them with string. Place them at curbside alongside the yard waste bags and cans. Do not place yard waste in the green recycling containers.

Questions, call Republic Services at 800-433-1309.
