At the October 7, 2015 Trustees Meeting the Trustees approved entering into an exclusive 5-year trash collection contract with Republic Waste.
The reasons were to reduce the number of trucks on our roads, make trash and recycling volumes reporting simpler, and, most importantly, to reduce the cost of collection service to our residents. The prices in the table reflect the per/month fee for each type of service. The contract will start on January 1, 2016 and Republic will be sending out literature to all the residents with the details of how this contract will work.
Be sure to call Republic Services to complete your account set up at 1-800-247-3644.

If a resident is physically unable to take their trash to the curb, they will need to notify Copley Township who will notify Republic and they will receive Garage Service for the same rate as Curbside or Senior rate, whichever applies. Doctor's note and completed Disability Verification form are required documents.
Each resident will receive a 96 gallon trash cart and a 65 gallon recycle cart. Both are on large wheels for ease of movement. Trash is picked up weekly and recycling is picked up every two weeks. Please see the map below for pickup days.
Residents are allowed to use their existing trash containers for extra trash that will not fit into the 96 gallon but are encouraged to use the supplied cart. Republic is anticipating to automate the system in 2018 and the carts will be a necessity.
Residents who have another means of disposing of trash must submit a waiver for verification to Copley and Republic.
Weekly bulky items and yard waste pickup is included at no extra cost. These items must be set at the curb.
