Branch Chipping Services April - October 2013
Branch Chipping begins on the First Monday of the listed months, and continues until a complete route through the City has been completed. For 2013, this service will be provided to residents April - October.
NOTE: One route through the City will be done in each of the designated months.
Branches should be placed on the curb by the first of the month to ensure pick up during that month.
NOTE: Due to the time required to provide this service to the entire City on a monthly basis, the crews will be unable to return to pick up branches that were not out for chipping when your street was completed for the month.
We ask that you pile the branches parallel to the roadway (cut ends not facing the road) to assist our crews in their collection efforts as this increases efficiency and worker safety as they operate the chipping equipment. Please use caution and remain alert when driving near the chipping crews to keep our workers and yourself safe!
NOTE: Branches must not be larger than 10 inches in diameter.
REFUSE AND RECYCLING
The City of Twinsburg has a contract with Waste Management for residential waste and recycle collection services, and they provide residents with containers for Trash and curbside Recycling at no cost to the residents. Collection is every Tuesday between the hours of 7AM and 7PM. To ensure pick up, please have your containers curbside by 7:00AM on Tuesdays, but preferably not before 6:00PM on the evening prior. Contact Waste Management directly at 1-866-797-9018 to request refuse and recycling containers.
Trash and recycling must be out by 7:00 A.M. on the day of pickup. For more information or customer service please contact Waste Management at (800) 523-7193.
Waste Management will pickup (1) large item a week, i.e. furniture, mattress, appliance, TV. Residents are instructed to put the items out next to your trash & recycle containers and Waste Management will come around at the end of the day and pick up those items with a special truck. Any other large discarded trash should be broken down into 4 foot lengths and no heavier than 25 lbs. weights, including wood which also needs to have the nails removed or safely bent over.
Carpet should be rolled and tied to ensure pickup.
Residents are encouraged to compost, however (6) bags of yard waste are permitted per week. Place the bags next to your trash containers, not inside of them.
Large recycling bins are also available for residential use in Twinsburg. This may be the best way to handle larger items such as moving boxes, etc. Please break down corregated boxes before putting into bins. The bins are permenently located at 10260 Ravenna Road (Behind the school buses next to Chamberlin Middle School).

An Easier Way to Pay Your Sewer Bill
How to Apply:
Leaf Pick-up begins October 15th and runs continuously through December weather permitting. The Service Department asks that all leaves be raked to the tree lawn and that piles be free of twigs, grass clippings, and other garden materials. Raking of leaves to cul-de-sac islands or into the streets is not permitted.
Storm Sewers/Catch Basins
The Service Department builds and repairs storm sewers and catch basins located in the city. Residents may request an inspection by the Engineering Dept to determine if their open storm water ditch is eligible for piping in. If approved, the Service Dept. provides labor at no cost, and the residents are billed for the cost of materials only. For more information call (330) 963-6212.
