[ARCHIVED] City to Close Recycling at Oak Grove Park - Recycle Curbside Instead!

Recycling Center

Based on recommendation from the Environmental Awareness Committee (EAC), the City of Hudson will be closing the recycling area located at Oak Grove Park by May 1, 2019.  

The EAC cited the following continuous operational and budgetary challenges for recommending closing the facility:

  • There is no ability to monitor or enforce proper recycling.
  • The recycling center has become more of a dumping ground for non-recyclable items such as paint, tires, chemicals and construction materials. (see photos below)
  • Costs for general upkeep and removal of non-recyclable items exceeds the grant funded amount intended to sustain the recycling center.

Curbside recycling is offered free to residents by their private hauler as mandated through City of Hudson ordinance. If you have been relying on the Recycling Center at Oak Grove Park, we encourage you to contact your hauler to arrange for free pick up of recyclables at your curb.

All haulers operating in the City of Hudson still take glass and provide information regarding recycling on their websites. If you have any questions, please contact your hauler for specific information on recycling.

Haulers encourage recycling as it is cheaper for them to take recyclables to a transfer station than to pay the tipping fee for the disposal of regular garbage.

For the disposal of hazardous waste, please utilize the Household Hazardous Waste Recycling Center located at 1201 Graham Road in Stow. The facility will re-open for the 2019 season on June 6.  

Look for more information about the closing of the facility and recycling options in the coming month.
