- Price Farms: 4838 Warrensburg Rd., Delaware, OH 43015.
Phone: (740) 362-4838
- Kurtz Brothers: 6055 Westerville Rd., Westerville, Ohio 43081
- Spring Clean-Up Dumpsters (separated metal, general trash, organic yard waste): April 22-30, 2023
- Fall Composting (organic yard waste only): Throughout November
Dedicated yard waste dumpsters are placed at the maintenance facility for leaves, grass clippings, tree stumps and branches, paper yard bags, and any other organic material that will break down as compost throughout November. Plastic trash bags, plastic pots, metal, or other general trash should NOT be placed in the dumpsters. Misuse of the dumpster may result in the program being discontinued by the Township’s composting partner.
The Maintenance Department hires a street sweeping contractor to clear post-winter debris in the early spring and again in the late fall. Avoid parking at the curb during these periods to ensure all properties receive the service. However, leaves should not be raked into the gutters; street sweeping will not clear this volume of debris. Additionally, leaves can clog storm drains and contribute to neighborhood flooding.
