Brush collection: January through September
Brush collection starts the last Monday of each month, except for October, November and December due to leaf collection, but will resume in January. Please call (440) 324-3517 before 8:00AM prior to the last Monday, if you don't call we may not pick it up. Leave your name, address and phone number and please talk slowly so we can schedule our route for that day. Calls received after 8:00AM Monday of collection will be added to the list for the following month.
Do not bag your brush. Place the cut ends of your branches toward the road. If you have a large quantity help us out and spread it out across your yard. When the piles get high it is hard to pull the branches out. Our chipper does not like prickers, flowers, weeds, corn stocks, any type of grape vine material, or fire wood size logs. They plug up our filters and intake screens and get caught up in the feed reels. If you pay a contractor to trim or cut down your tree they are responsible for what they do. the Road Department will not pick it up. This was a motion passed by the Board of Trustees.
Wood chips are free to township residents and they can be dropped off in your driveway when the Road Department is out chipping. Residents may also pick them up at the township garage.
We have a small amount of leaf mulch for flower beds or gardens. Pickup only, no deliveries.
Pictured at the top of the page are a 2012 New Holland backhoe; a 2012 International; our 2001 Dodge dump truck; and our Ford F-150. These vehicles are used for a variety of tasks throughout the Township including snow plowing, general roadwork and brush collection.
