Refuse & Recycling Programs
Sylvania, along with other local agencies, offers a variety of refuse and recycling programs. City residents are currently offered not only weekly curbside refuse pick but also bi-weekly recycling and green yard waste pick up. These programs work together to make our city a cleaner and more earth-friendly community.
Due to COVID-19 and the current lock down of City Offices, Green Yard Waste stickers must be purchased by mail or over the phone. Call the Utilities Office at 419.885.TREE (8733) option 1 for more information.
Green yard waste bags are always available for $2.00 each and can be purchased at the following locations:
- Sylvania Ace Hardware
- Sautters Food Center
- Both Sylvania Kroger Locations
