Copley Township is pleased to announce the opening of its new Recycle Center at 1280 Sunset Drive (next to the Copley Police Department).  This center is for all Copley Township residents and businesses that want to recycle but may not have an avenue to do so.  There are four separate containers to deposit recyclable items. Signs are in place to help guide users to the correct containers and flyers are available with information pertaining to the Recycle Center as well as other collection and recycle programs offered by Copley Township. This facility was made possible by grants from Summit/Akron/Solid Waste Management Authority.

To Tow Away, Auction Off and Recycle Old Cars free of charge go to  Proceeds benefit Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana.
