NOTICE TO VILLAGE OF ANTWERP RESIDENTS
VILLAGE WIDE TRASH PICK-UP TO START
APRIL 2, 2015
Starting Thursday, April 2, 2015, the Village of Antwerp will have one trash pickup and all residential addresses that are current water and sewer customers and inside the corporation limits of the Village of Antwerp will be serviced by Real Waste Disposal, LLC.
The Village entered into a contract with Real Waste to provide for one village-wide trash company. Residents will be billed for this service on their water and sewer bill. The cost will be $8.65 per month and will be billed quarterly at a cost of $25.95. This cost will include up to four (4) 30-gallon plastic bags (up to 40 lbs each). Any resident wanting a cart can rent one directly from Real Waste Disposal. Their contact phone number is 419-594-2888.
The first billing will appear on your April 1, 2015 and will cover the months of April, May and June, 2015. Should you have another trash company, you should contact your hauler and let them know that as of April 2, 2015, the village is requiring that all residential customers use Real Waste Disposal.
Included in this cost, Real Waste will provide for large bulky item pick up once per month. The first Thursday of each month residents can set out large items with their regular collection. The village utility office has a list of items that can’t be set out as determined by what the landfill will not allow.
The Village utility office will be the contact for move in or move out of homes or rental property as the village will contact Real Waste to start or stop collection. Residents who expect to be away from home for 30 consecutive days or longer should also call ahead to the utility office to have service stopped and a credit applied. The utility office number is 419-258-7075 and the village administrator’s office number is 419-258-2371.
Commercial business, mobile home parks and large apartment complexes are exempt from this requirement and will continue to negotiate their own contracts with trash companies. If you have a business and/or apartment complex and have questions on this new program, please contact the utility office or administrator’s office.
It is hoped that this new approach to trash pick-up in the village will result in savings for home owners, along with an opportunity to dispose of larger items without having to haul these items to the landfill yourself. Again, anyone who will be affected by this change in trash service who has questions should feel free to contact the village administrator or utility billing clerk at the numbers listed above.
PLEASE NOTE A CORRECTION: THE MONTHLY CHARGE IS $8.85 AND THE QUARTERLY CHARGE WILL BE $26.55. SORRY FOR THE INCORRECT AMOUNT POSTED ABOVE.
