Solid Waste District Announces Special Collections Cancelled
Due to current social distancing restrictions and stay-at-home directives brought on by the novel coronavirus, the Lake County Solid Waste District has cancelled three of the county’s special collection events.
The Household Hazardous Waste Collection on June 6th and the second Electronics and TV/CRT Monitor Collection on August 15th are the next scheduled collections.
The district, along with local leaders, will continue to monitor the situation to determine if these collections can still occur and be performed normally.
The only collection that will not be made up this year is the Scrap Tire Collection. However, these items can be brought to the Lake County Landfill for a fee after the stay-at-home restrictions have been lifted by Gov. Mike DeWine.
The fee for car and pickup tires without rims, up to 20 inches, is $3 each. Semi-truck tires without rims, over 20 inches, are $5 each. Tractor and agricultural tires without rims are $15.
Each resident is limited to bringing six tires in each of the previous categories.
The Lake County Landfill is open to the public weekdays from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

For more information about the Special Collections, call 440-350-5766.

More important than ever, with everyone staying home so much more. Please be generous with your unwanted books.

RENEWING YOUR DRIVERS LICENSE OR PLATES

Real ID becoming a reality for Ohio Motorists
Beginning October 1, 2020, the federal government will no longer consider standard driver licenses and identification cards as sufficient forms of identification. A federally compliant driver license, identification card or another acceptable form of identification such as a military ID or U.S. Passport – will be required to board a commercial flight, or enter a secure federal building.
To get a compliant driver license, your local BMV must verify the following documents:
- Birth Certificate or U.S. Passport/Passport Card
- Social Security Card or most recent W-2 or 1099 with the full social security number
- Two proofs of Ohio street address: utility bills, credit card/bank statements
- Proof of legal name changes: marriage license(s)/divorce decree(s).
Customers will be issued an Ohio Interim Documentation form which will serve as the temporary driver license/ID card. A new permanent compliant license will be sent through the mail in about 10 business days.
The Ohio compliant card and standard card cost the same. Driver licenses and identification cards will continue to be valid for four years and require a new photograph with every renewal.
More information about document requirements, including a complete list of acceptable documents, can be found on the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles website at https://www.bmv.ohio.gov/NEWDL-ID/.
