Cleveland Metroparks is committed to keeping all of its properties clean and safe for visitors. Trash collection and litter pickup is an area the Park District continues to focus on and improve, especially at Edgewater Park. Help us, help you! Litter pickup takes up a considerable amount of staff hours; Cleveland Metroparks Lakefront staff spends approximately 40 hours per week picking up litter! And, litter cleanup costs the U.S. almost $11.5 billion each year! With 102 trash receptacles and roughly 30 recycling bins at Edgewater Park there are plenty of options to easily dispose of your trash.
