recycle park hours of operation

Please note:  glass is not accepted in our single stream recycling drop off program at this time.

Also, please do not leave your recyclables in plastic grocery bags –  they require a different collection system and processing equipment than many recycling centers provide. Many grocery stores (including Chesterland Giant Eagle) have collection bins specifically geared toward plastic grocery bags.

Chester Recycle Park, located at 12535 Chillicothe Road, is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to accommodate residents' recycling needs. Bins are typically emptied on Fridays and Mondays, and the Park is closed when the bins are full, in order to minimize windblown trash.

Please remember, Chester Township receives revenue for paper and cardboard that is placed into the "paper only" bins on the right-hand side of the recycle drive.  If you are able to segregate your paper/cardboard from other recyclables, it is appreciated.

CEI also has a power outage map showing the number of outages in an area and estimated times for restoration:  Power Outage Map - First Energy

If your power remains out after the estimated restoration time has passed, CEI asks that you call the outage reporting line again.
