Dispose of Campaign Signs Right

Do not place unwanted campaign yard signs in curbside recycling.

Following an election, recycle unwanted campaign yard signs – plastic film, corrugated plastic and cardboard signs plus the metal stands – at the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District, 4750 East 131 Street in Garfield Heights. A collection cart is in the building vestibule. Hours are Monday-Friday from 8:30-4:30. County offices, including the Solid Waste District, are closed on holidays. The Solid Waste District has been collecting campaign signs since the 2012 general election.

Your community may also collect campaign signs for recycling; check with your city service department for details. You can use this website's location services or the ‘Select a City’ drop-down in the dark green bar at the top of every page.

Materials are recycled by Northcoast Recycling Specialists in Wickliffe. The plastic is marketed to compounders that convert the material into pellets for making items such as plastic bags and plastic toys. Paper is sent to a fiber recycler. The metal is recycled through a local scrap yard.
