Mayor Carl J. Kamm III
The Village is moving forward with the trash and recycling contract with Republic Services. You may have already received a letter from Republic.
Current Republic customers will automatically switch to the new plan starting April 1, 2016. Carts for your use to collect trash and recyclables will be delivered starting March 28, 2016 in advance of the first collection on April 4, 2016.
If you are not a current customer and would like to become one, you should contact the local Republic office in Sandusky. Please note you are not required to have this service. However, Republic will be the only residential trash hauler doing business in Berlin Heights starting April 1, 2016. As a reminder, the service is $75.00 per quarter for the weekly collection of trash and recyclables, plus a monthly collection of up to three bulk trash items per customer. Additional carts may be added at the cost of $36.00 per quarter for an additional trash cart and $30.00 per quarter for an additional recyclable material cart. As a subscriber, if you have additional trash, you may use Republic’s pre-paid bags ($2.50/each) to dispose of your extra trash on a weekly basis.
If you are age 60 or older, you have the option of signing up for the senior discount plan which will provide a cart for weekly collection of recycling for $30.00 per quarter. You would then purchase Republic’s pre-paid trash bags at $2.50 per bag for your trash. Please contact Republic directly if you are age 60 or over and wish to sign up for this discounted service.
There will be an informational meeting on Wednesday, March 30, 2016 starting at 5:30 p.m. at the Berlin Township building and Fire Station related to the program and what material is recyclable and what material is not recyclable.

The Village and your fellow citizens appreciate you support in maintaining the lights and safety of our streets. Thank you for reporting any issues.
