Please watch our newsletter and our website in the months to come for more complete info to help your family make the most of recycling as we move forward. It is still the right thing to do - for today and for our future.

Planet Oasis Update:

As of November 27, 2018, the township has not received any zoning applications for the project. When an application is received it will show on the agenda for the Zoning Board meeting for which it is scheduled.

The Berkshire Township Hall is the ideal place for a family gathering, shower, party or group meeting. It is available to township residents for a modest rental fee. ($75 rental fee plus a $100 refundable deposit) It has a modern kitchen (2 microwaves, full size fridge, no stove/oven), tables, chairs, handicap accessible restroom facilities and is located at 1454 Rome Corners Road. Weekend dates are especially popular, so reserve yours soon.


P.S. Have a photo of the hall decorated or in use for your event? We'd love to see it! If you'd like to share please email it to  (We might show it off on the website)

Things have changed a lot in the recycling industry over the last two-plus years. Many items which were once considered recyclable are now unwanted; clogging up the process for the "good stuff" - resulting in less success and higher costs for those involved.

For many years, China was the recipient of much of America's recyclables. Now China has stopped the importation of those materials. For this reason, what we will be able to recycle in the future is decreasing, and how we prepare them for recycling is becoming more critical.

we have packets of milkweed seeds here at the township hall for township residents to come and pick up - for free!
They've gathered seeds from two different varieties of milkweed plants and provided planting instructions, too. You can plant them in the spring to have plants next summer for our brilliantly colored friends to visit when they arrive from Mexico. Then you can observe the miraculous process of metamorphosis in your own yard. Seeds are available at 1454 Rome Corners Rd. during business hours.

Check out the Parks page on this website for information about the success of the Monarch Habitat here at the township park.

If you're interested in creating your own monarch garden at home, we can help. Thanks to Floyd Siebert and Susan Holtry,

Welcome to Berkshire Township, Delaware County, Ohio


At the November 26th Trustee Meeting, the Trustees announced that a new company has been selected as the trash and recycling provider for all Berkshire Township Residents.

Rumpke Waste & Recycling Services is the new provider; start date is Feb. 1, 2019.

Here are the important points to remember:

  • Thursday, Jan.31, 2019 is the last Republic Pick-up day
  • Thursday, February 7, 2019 is the first Rumpke pick-up day
  • Do not pay Republic for service past 1/31/19. This is your responsibility and not something

         the township can address

  • When you get their mailer, contact RUMPKE  to sign up for service
  • Be sure to switch to Rumpke containers (which they will provide) for the Feb. 1st pick-up
  • As we currently have, recycling will be picked up every other week. THE MAILER YOU RECEIVE FROM RUMPKE WILL HAVE YOUR RECYCLING CALENDAR ON IT. PLEASE SAVE IT.
  • Watch this website for updates and info
  • The township and Rumpke will be sending out mailers to residents with more information in the coming weeks

Please check this website and your email for further confirmation of dates and details. We encourage all Berkshire Township residents to sign up to receive the Township email newsletter. A link is provided at the bottom of the HOME page on this website.


The industry is changing...are you ready?
