Solid Waste

As part of your service, bulky items are collected on your regular scheduled collection day.
Bulky items include stoves, hot water tanks (water removed), washers, dryers, furniture, chairs and carpet (4 feet in length). All mattresses, box springs and upholstered furniture placed out for disposal that are contaminated with bed bugs MUST be wrapped and sealed in plastic. 

Appliances containing Freon must have the Freon removed and the unit tagged by a qualified technician. If not tagged by a qualified technician the item will be tagged and left for proper handling. Please keep these large items three feet away from your carts. On the occasion you cannot fit all household solid waste in your cart, please place excess solid waste in separate containers, trash bags or bundled for collection on your regular scheduled collection day.

Bundled trash should not exceed 4 feet in length and all excess trash should not exceed 60
pounds. The entire volume of solid waste placed at the curb for collection outside the 95-
gallon solid waste collection container, including yard waste, bulky items, personal bags,
and/or other 30 gallon cans shall not exceed two (2) cubic yards or a space of approximately 3’x 3’ x 6’ on each collection day. Excess materials set out each week over the two (2) cubic yard limit will not be collected and must be removed from the curb until your next scheduled collection day.

As before, the weekly refuse collection service DOES NOT include, tires, batteries,
automotive/truck parts, paint, oil, fluorescent bulbs, gas cans, propane tanks,
hazardous/infectious waste, flammable liquids, contractor generated construction materials and any waste prohibited from disposal in a municipal solid waste landfill.

What You Can Recycle

Kimble supplied bright green recycling cart includes information on the lid regarding what can be recycled and provides a more convenient way for residents to recycle large quantities. Please do not use your recycling cart for extra solid waste. Recycling carts containing solid waste will not be emptied and will be tagged to notify the resident of improper use. Single Stream Recycling - There is no need to bundle your newspapers, cardboard, or any other materials separately. All recyclable materials can be placed together loose (no need to bag) into your new recycling cart as a “single stream” of recyclable material. The individual components of the mixed recyclable materials or “single stream” will be segregated and prepared for market at an automated recycling facility. See the enclosed complete list of all the items which can be placed in your recycling cart to be recovered and returned to markets.

Additional Plastics Recycled - Plastic containers labeled #1 through #7 can be recycled. Most plastic products are labeled on the bottom with a recycling symbol consisting of arrows that cycle clockwise to form a rounded triangle, and enclosing the number 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, or 7. Any rigid food container or other consumer product container labeled in this fashion can be included for recycling. Examples of plastic containers that can now be recycled include salad dressing bottles, peanut butter and jam jars, juice bottles, squeezable bottles (ketchup and mustard), clam shell food containers, microwavable food containers, yogurt containers, margarine tubs, baby milk bottles, shampoo bottles, cooking oil bottles, hand soap bottles, apple sauce cups, cool whip containers, and plastic flower pot containers. Plastic items not acceptable include plastic bags, shrink wrap, Styrofoam, toys, motor oil and antifreeze containers. As you can see, there is a tremendous amount of material which can be diverted from your solid waste cart to your new 64- gallon recycling cart. Recycling a ton of plastic saves the energy equivalent of 1,500 gallons of gasoline!

Yard Waste

Kimble will collect leaves, grass clippings or decomposable natural yard waste, if placed in with your trash or if placed in a separate trash can with a tag purchased from a local authorized vendor. Garbage cannot exceed 60 pounds.

In the fall, The City of Barberton will pick up loose leaves raked into a row and placed on the street no more than two (2) feet from the curb or edge of the street without obstructing traffic. Once the upcoming Fall Leaf Removal Schedule is released, it can be found on our website and will also be published in the Barberton Herald.
