Mayor Jack Everson announced today several changes that will affect City residents this coming year.  Chillicothe,_Ohio_sign


  1. 1.    Garbage crews will be reduced from 3 trucks to 2 trucks per day effective Monday January 14.


This will affect the time trucks arrive at your residence and in some cases will move pickup times well into the afternoon. All residents are reminded that their trash must be set out for pickup by 6:00 a.m. on their scheduled trash pickup day.  The City crews will not be permitted to return to homes that have failed to set their trash out prior to the arrival of the truck. To avoid any confusion, all trash must be out by 6:00 a.m.


  1. The City will no longer pick up trash on Holidays effective immediately. Our first holiday of the year is January 21, 2013.  When a holiday falls on your scheduled pickup day, please wait and set your trash out the following morning. This change will again affect pickup times and may cause some carryover until the next business day. In the case of a holiday falling on a Friday, trash should not be set out until the following Monday to avoid having it sitting out over the weekend.
