Guidelines and Schedules

The City will be divided into 4 sections for curbside pickup. Each section will be picked up in 1 week scheduled time frames from the 1st of April until the end of April. All items must be put to the curb by 7:00 a.m. on the first scheduled day of your section, regardless of your location in the section. All items put out after 7:00 a.m. the first day of your scheduled pickup time will be charged pursuant to the large pickup charges.

Up to 3 cubic yards of material will be picked up free. There will be no fee for up to 3 cubic yards of material. 3 cubic yards is equal to an 8’ pickup, loaded to cab top. Additional amounts are charged at $8.00 per cycled hopper, which is one cycle of the rear sweep blade. Items must be reasonably handled by two adult persons and fit into the rear of the packer truck or hopper. Only approved items will be picked up. Items to be picked up are to be placed curb side. A complete schedule will be publicized, just prior to Spring Clean-up, and will be posted on the City website.

Items containing Freon, such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, etc. may be scheduled for pick up through the Sanitation Office, 419-289-8728,  at a rate of $15.00 per item.

All Freon containing lines must be intact and no components may be removed. If Freon containing lines are cut or components removed, the item will not be picked up.

Please note:
Property owners are responsible for incurred charges in all cases. Containers, bags, or any material put out for scheduled pickup, not in accordance with your scheduled day for pick up, will be picked up and billed in accordance with large pickup rate. If garbage is left curbside, and it is not on your scheduled pickup day, we have to assume you want it picked up. We will pick it up and include additional charges on your monthly bill. If garbage cans are left curbside, past 6:00 p.m. on your pick up day, additional charges will be incurred and put on your monthly bill.

Large Item Pickup

Large pickups may be scheduled through the Sanitation Office, 419-289-8728, at times other than Spring Cleanup. The rate of $8.00 per cycled hopper, which is one cycle of the rear sweep blade, applies for this service. Items must be reasonably handled by two adult persons and fit into the rear of the packer truck or hopper. Couches require two cycles which is two cycles of the rear sweep blade. Only approved items will be picked up. Items to be picked up are to be placed curb side.

 

CRT Monitors & Televisions

Televisions and CRT monitors should not be put out for Spring Clean Up due to the potential of broken glass on the streets.
