The Village's bulk trash pick-ups continue through November. The program is for items that cannot be picked up during normal weekly refuse collection.
Pick ups will be on Aug. 26, Sept. 23, Oct. 28, and Nov. 18. The fee is $65 per residence, and there is a limit of 30 households per date.
The deadline to register is 5 p.m. the Wednesday before the pick-up, but spaces are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis, so register early.
Register online by visiting ottawahills.org and going to the Refuse & Recycling page, or stop into the Jean Youngen Municipal Building at 2125 Richards Rd.
Items will be picked up at your home. They should be placed on a paved surface near the garage, not at the curb. All items should be out and ready to be collected by 8 a.m. the day of the pick up. The program is not intended to accommodate major construction or demolition disposal, and fees will be added if disposal exceeds normal household amounts.
Workers cannot move items from inside your home or garage. Loose items should be bundled or boxed, and your driveway should be clear of cars. You do not need to be present at the time of pick-up.
Examples of acceptable items include: appliances without refrigerant (must have tag if refrigerants have been removed); building materials, including drywall, water heaters, and furnace parts; wooden material, with nails removed or bent over; furniture, including mattresses and box springs; carpet (in rolls no wider than four feet); brush that is bundled and tied in four-foot lengths; and miscellaneous debris.
Items that will not be collected include: hazardous waste, medical waste, liquid waste, paint, tires, concrete, stone, dirt, and rock. To dispose of these items, contact Lucas County Solid Waste at 419-213-2230.
