The City of Sandusky offers residents, free-of-charge, a location to drop off cardboard, paper, plastic bottles and jugs, and metal cans. The City recycling bins are located at: 

1024 Cement Avenue
Open 24 Hours for City of Sandusky Residents Only

DO NOT bag your recyclables. Place all recyclable items loosely within the bins. Please view the quick reference guide regarding responsible recycling

The following items are NOT ACCEPTED in the recycling bins:
  • Household Trash
  • Construction Debris
  • Trash or Plastic Grocery Bags
  • TVs
  • Yard Waste
  • Furniture 
  • Household Appliances
The recycling bins are serviced by Republic Services on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays in the afternoon. If you find that all bins are full, do not leave recyclable items around the bins, as that is considered littering and violators may be charged. We ask that you take your recyclables with you and return to the bins at a later time to attempt to dispose of those items. The recycling area is monitored by video surveillance, and violators of illegal dumping or littering may be contacted by Sandusky Police. 

The Erie County Solid Waste District also offers several recycling locations. Please visit their website for more information about recycling locations and information on recycling household, hazardous and non-hazardous items.  

City-Wide Cleanup
The City of Sandusky offers a City-Wide Cleanup day twice a year where City of Sandusky residents can bring various household items to be destroyed.
