Recycle Center

THE RECYCLE CENTER IS CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.                          Notice: Starting Thursday June 6, 2019, the days and hours of Recycle Center will change to Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays ONLY. Thursdays 3pm - 7pm, Fridays & Saturdays 9am - 1pm. Users will be greeted by a Monitor that will assist them, inspect all items for deposit, and answer any questions. The route of entry to the center has also been changed. To avoid possible congestion that would block Police vehicles in an emergency situation users should no longer use the Police Department driveway. Continue north on Sunset toward the soccer field and bear to the left to approach the center by the paper/cardboard containers. We ask that users form a queue line so the Monitor can assist vehicles one at a time. No line jumping please. These changes are being made because of the continual trash contamination of the containers. Call  the  Service Department at 330-666-0365 with any questions.

1280 Sunset Drive - Next to the Copley Police Station

Recycle Center Closed

The Copley Township Recycle Center was made possible by using Community Recycling Access Grant (CRAG) funding from Summit Reworks, the solid waste management authority for the Summit County. The facility opened in August 2012 and was built to give residents a way to recycle if they have no other means to do so and one doesn't have to be a Copley resident to use it.

Due to changes in the recycling industry worldwide our accepted item list has changed. Only those items that appear on the list below are accepted.

Commingle Container

Plastics #1 & #2 ONLY - #3 - #7 not accepted
Glass Bottles & Jars  - Clear, brown, green ONLY
Steel or Bi-metal Cans ONLY
Aeseptic Cartons ONLY - OJ, milk, half&half, etc.

Rinse out all of the above items to ensure a clean load

Aluminum Can Container

Aluminum Cans ONLY 

Please do not deposit any item in any container that is not on the above list.  Doing so risks trash contamination and the rejection of the entire load by the recycling processor. Rejected loads will be taken to a landfill which defeats the purpose of this facility. 


There are guidance signs and flyers available on site to help users deposit their recycle items into the correct containers. Please take a flyer home for future reference.  

Commingle Container


Aluminum Cans ONLY Container


Rebates are donated to the Akron Children's Hospital Aluminum Cans for Burned Children (ACBC) program.

Newspaper, paper, magazines, catalogs, paperback books, junk mail, office and school papers, calendars, chip board or fiber board (cereal, pop and beer cartons), envelopes (with or without  windows), phone books, aseptic cartons (milk, juice, half & half, etc).  Please break down all boxes to make a heavier load.

This facility is monitored by Copley Police Department surveillance camera. For more information contact the Copley Service Department at 330-666-0365.
