COMING AGAIN IN 2019... You'll want to know about this
If you've ever tried to dispose of certain hazardous waste materials, such as tires, electronics or paints, you know how hard and how expensive it can be.


Did you know that there's an organization in our area designed for residents to help with this process?
The Delaware, Knox, Marion, Morrow (DKMM) Joint Solid Waste District is a legal political subdivision of the State of Ohio. It is charged with implementing the District's Solid Waste Management Plan.


DKMM funds programs that provide education and it also hosts HAZARDOUS WASTE RECYCLE EVENTS in our four county region. If you have tires, electronics, household hazardous waste, paint or other difficult to recycle items, heads up!
There will be four special recycle events held in our area again in 2019. The link to a 2-page flyer for these events is below. Please print off and save for your reference.
The first event will be held Sat. April 27th.

"New to Medicare Class" Coming in February to the Township Hall

Important news regarding final Republic pick-up  As of 2/14/19 We are aware that MANY residents have not had their final trash collection from Republic and still have trash, recycling and the blue Republic containers at their curbs. We have been informed by Republic that they are trying to complete pick up of trash, recycling and containers but they have not committed to a firm date. The trustees understand completely how frustrating this is. PLEASE DO NOT CONTINUE TO PUT TRASH OR RECYCLING IN YOUR REPUBLIC CONTAINERS. Use your new Rumpke containers. You may contact Jason at Republic directly at 614-272-3728. Vic Citro no longer serves this area.  Rumpke service has  begun and as a reminder, they are not permitted to pick up from any other company's containers.
