The route of entry to the center will remain the same.  Continue north on Sunset toward the soccer field and bear to the left to approach the center by the paper/cardboard containers.
Users are to form a queue line and no line jumping. 

Please do not use the Police Department entrance to avoid any potential conflict or congestion that would delay Police vehicles leaving the premises in an emergency.

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
Aseptic 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 recycling 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.

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