Rethinking with ReWorks – ReWorks’ Programs & Services for Summit County

by Marcie E. Kress, Executive Director, ReWorks

ReWorks offers programs to Summit County residents to divert various materials from the landfill. We’ve also included our event flyer in this magazine for you to clip out and use as a reference, and you can visit for information.
Household Hazardous Waste Recycling Center (HHWRC) – For our 28th year, we are excited to offer the residents of Summit County options for household chemicals. Materials like oil-based paint, batteries, used motor oil and pesticides can be brought to the HHWRC every Thursday from June 1 to September 28, from 2-7 p.m.
We also accept tires at the HHWRC. Tires are the only item we charge for, and the cost is a $1 cash-only fee per tire with a limit of 10 tires per vehicle. The tires can be on or off the rims and must be from a car or light passenger truck.
The program is for Summit County residents only and the materials must be generated by Summit County residents for use at their own home.
Document Shredding and Recycling Events – Shredded paper does not go into home recycling carts. Instead, Summit County residents and businesses are encouraged to shred and recycle confidential documents at ReWorks-funded events offered in 2023 or at other local private companies offering year-round shredding and recycling services.
Contact local private companies directly for details on their shredding and recycling services.
ReWorks events have a limit of 10 file boxes or paper bags per vehicle and all documents are shredded on site. Remove paper clips, report covers, rubber bands or binders (staples are okay). No household hazardous waste is accepted at any of the shredding events.
New Other Recycling Events – For six collection days around Earth Day (April 22), ReWorks will collect difficult-to-recycle materials, such as glass bottles, campaign signs, string lights and cooking oil. ReWorks will also collect electronic devices like televisions (CRT and flat screen only), cell phones, VCR/DVD players, game consoles, laptops and tablets. Registration for electronic devices is required. This event is for Summit County residents only. Visit for event dates, times, and guidelines.
ReWorks, the solid waste management authority for Summit County, provides programs, services and community outreach on waste reduction, recycling and other materials management strategies. For more information, visit, call 330-374-0383 or email us at:
