Weather permitting, Crossroads Asphalt Recycling will begin road repairs in Bunker Estates Subdivision on the following streets: Greenwood Oval, Greenwood Road, Bunker Ct., Pine Hill Ct., Woodside Drive and Oakwood Lane. Both lanes of traffic will be effected during this project and it should take about 1 month to complete.
Motorists are encouraged to slow down, pay special attention, use extreme caution and patience when traveling through work zones throughout North Royalton.
Here are some safety tips for traveling in work zones:
Pay complete attention! The most common cause of work zone crashes in inattentive drivers!
Orange is your clue! Pay attention when you see orange signs, barrels, cones and barricades.
Obey all speed signs, speed may be reduced for your safety and the safety of the workers.
Remember, work zone traffic lanes are often narrow.
When possible, move over to give workers more room between them and your vehicle.
Expect delays, plan for them and leave early so you can drive safely to your destination.

Decluttering, Spring Cleaning and Recycling
Spring is here, believe it or not, and for many it's time to start spring cleaning. Here are some great tips for decluttering and recycling this spring--so you can head right outside at the first sign of warm weather!
: The first step to a clutter-free home is getting rid of all that stuff you never use. Go through all the places you're most inclined to toss stuff as you say "I'll deal with this later" and group together the items you haven't used in a while. Reducing waste and clutter in your home can also include unsubscribing from junk mail lists and credit card offers.
Now you have a pile that you're ready to get rid of, avoid the "throw it away" mentality. First, go through and see if any of those items could serve a new purpose and possibly save you from buying something else. Old fabrics can turn into cleaning rags and most papers can be flipped over and used for scratch paper or art paper for the kids.
Donate or Sell
: After you've picked out what you can reuse, there may be plenty of items someone else might need. This includes kitchen items, clothes, books, magazines, toys and home decor. If you want to get rid of them ASAP drop them off at a local donation center or utilize our Simple Recycling curbside program. Check out their website at https://simplerecycling.com/
for acceptable items or more supplies. You can also try to sell your items online to earn some extra cash.
: As you're spring cleaning, look around to see how you can better set up for easy recycling. For instance, is there a place in your bathroom to put recyclables like empty toilet paper rolls, band-aid boxes, and tissue boxes along with empty plastic shampoo, lotion/body wash and mouthwash bottles?
Avoid Waste: While doing spring cleaning try to aim for zero waste. As a replacement for buying plastic bags for your small trash cans, utilize the leftover plastic bags from the grocery store. As well as using old t-shirts or washable towels instead of paper towels.
Watch for Community Drives
: Sometimes it can be difficult to know what to do with certain items that need disposed of properly. North Royalton offers year-round collection at the Recycle Yard, 11545 Royalton Rd.
