Residents wishing to dispose of items too large for refuse containers may now call for a collection year around by appointment as opposed to having to wait for specific times of the year. As part of the program, residents may schedule up to two large item collections (up to 5 items per collection) at no additional charge per year (some restrictions apply). An example of the 5 item limitation would be a typical kitchen table with 4 chairs – this would be considered 1 item. Thereafter the following fees apply: $25 for the first item, $15 per item thereafter. Residents simply need to call Public Works at 419-354-6227 to schedule a date (typically a Monday or Friday) to have the item(s) curbside no later than 7:00 am. Because of additional fees and restrictions at the Wood County Landfill, mattresses will still require additional payment (maximum of 3 mattresses) and items with Freon cannot be collected (such as dehumidifiers and refrigerators).
Residents are encouraged to visit the City’s website for more information and details. Information about Large Item Collection and other special collections may be found on the Public Works Division webpage or residents may call Public Works at 419-354-6227.
