recycle park hours of operation

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.  

For more information about recycling, please visit www.startrecycling.com.

POWER OUTAGE GUIDELINES - FIRST ENERGY

To report an outage, please call the CEI Outage Reporting Line at 1-888-544-4877.

When electric power is lost, CEI crews' highest priorities are removing downed wires and electrical hazards. Critical infrastructure is focused on next - police, fire, schools, hospitals, wastewater treatment, etc. Some residents may see a CEI truck go through their neighborhood but their power remains out - these crews are patrolling the area and looking for damage and safety hazards.

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.

Customers can also download the FirstEnergy App; with the app, you can sign up for outage status text messages on your mobile devices, whether Apple or Android:
