A special trash pick-up, to collect items which are too heavy or of such composition or configuration that they cannot be placed in the regular weekly refuse collection containers, will be held during the week starting Monday.
All items should be placed curbside by 7 a.m. on Monday to ensure pick-up. Items may be placed curbside no earlier than 5 p.m. the day prior to pick-up.
There will only be one pick-up for each location and, once the crews leave a street, they will not return.
Pickup is by ward and not by the normal refuse collection day. City crews will collect the large items throughout the city independent of the normal refuse collection schedule. As with the city's residential refuse collection program, this special collection is only for one and two family dwellings on public streets, per city ordinance.
Mattresses/box springs now will be collected for an additional fee. The fee is $25 for the first mattress or box spring and $15 per mattress or box spring thereafter up to a total of three. The fee must be paid prior to collection at 304 N Church St., Public Works, 419-354-6227.
Note that refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, and dehumidifiers are not eligible for collection. By law, the city is not authorized to pick up building materials, construction or demolition refuse, sod, and rocks. For a fee, property owners may dispose of these items at the Wood County Landfill on U.S. 6.
