Refuse Changes 2018

Exciting changes are happening with our refuse service!  With the assistance of Lucas County Sanitary Engineers Office, we have negotiated a fair and reasonable contract with ARS Refuse Service, Inc. to outsource refuse collection.  ARS is a locally owned family business from Archbold, Ohio.

Refuse Outsourcing Summary:

  • Collection Day:  Mondays (with some holiday exceptions)
  • Place your bagged refuse in carts (lid closed)
  • Added Service:  weekly curbside recycling pickup
    • All recycling placed into one cart – no more sorting!
    • Do NOT bag recyclables
  • Two carts provided at no additional charge
    • You will need to choose your cart size
  • Monthly fee is $11.49 (subject to final Council decision)
  • Four (4) unlimited curbside pickups per year at no additional cost
  • At any time, large items can be disposed of by coordinating directly with ARS (fees may apply)

Carts will be delivered the week of May 7 – 12.

New service begins May 14.

The Village is dedicated to making this conversion as smooth as possible.  Please contact Village staff (419.877.5383) with any questions at all—we’re happy to help!
