If you live in the City of Warren, the Environmental Services Department (formerly known as Sanitation) is honored to take care of all your refuse collection needs. If you live outside the City of Warren but have Warren City water, it would be our privilege to provide your refuse collection service. Our staff is professional and courteous. Our prices are the best in the area. We have residential service as well as commercial dumpsters and roll-off boxes to rent.

For most recycling needs, please see the Geauga-Trumbull Waste Management District website.

Definition of "Construction and Demolition Debris"

According to ORC 3714.10(C):

"Construction and demolition debris" means those materials resulting from the alteration, construction, destruction, rehabilitation, or repair of any physical structure that is built by humans, including, without limitation, houses, buildings, industrial or commercial facilities, or roadways. "Construction and demolition debris" includes particles and dust created during demolition activities. "Construction and demolition debris" does not include materials identified or listed as solid wastes or hazardous waste pursuant to Chapter 3734 of the Revised Code and rules adopted under it; materials from mining operations, nontoxic fly ash, spent nontoxic foundry sand, and slag; or reinforced or non-reinforced concrete, asphalt, building or paving brick, or building or paving stone that is stored for a period of less than two years for recycling into a usable construction material."

Guidelines for Curbside Mattress Pickup

The Warren City Health District has issued guidelines for curbside mattress pickup. If you wish to leave a mattress at the curbside for garbage collection, please be aware of the following:

All mattresses placed at curbside must be plastic wrapped. The easiest and most economical method is to use disposable drop cloths, which can be purchased at any hardware or big box store. Please tape the plastic securely with strong tape so the entire mattress is covered.
