The CURBSIDE BRUSH PICKUP PROGRAM is a service that is provided with no taxes or user fees charged to support its operation. The original intent of the program was to dispose of limbs and branches downed by storms or natural tree pruning. We have seen entire trees cut, landscaping debris and garden waste put out for collection. The Village can no longer support the magnitude of this type of service and not charge for the operation of it. This service costs the Village in excess of $75,000 per year. Therefore, the Village will only collect branches and limbs downed by winds or natural pruning as part of its curbside service. If you have a tree removed, have your contractor take the brush as well. Once the Christiansen Road property is reclaimed and authorization is granted by the Ohio EPA, a green waste transfer site may be erected for green waste disposal. ( Posted 04/14/2015, 03/27/2018)
