Curbside refuse collection takes place on Fridays. Items should be placed at the curb by 7:00 a.m. 

The Village contracts with Maharg's Trash Service of Celina, Ohio, and utilizes a "bag system" whereby Residents must purchase specially-marked trash bags. Bags are available for purchase for $7.75 in packages of 5 bags at the Village Offices located at 214 North Washington Street; Schwietermans Pharmacy at 2 North Washington Street; Wagner's IGA located in the Amsterdam Shopping Center, "Z" Wash Haus and at Wagner's IGA located at 257 East Fourth Street, Minster, Oh.

*Individual retailers may charge more than $7.75*

The contractor will pick up an unlimited amount of bags from each household. However, the bags should not include refuse of a commercial nature (e.g. from businesses or contractors hired to perform services for home owners, etc.) or bulk items. Bulk items are picked up curbside on the normal collections day and require a special tag which can be purchased at the Village Offices located at 214 North Washington Street. Loose bulk items such as rocks and bricks must be boxed or placed in a "bushel basket" and cannot exceed 60 pounds. Also, chlorofluorocarbons (CFC's) must be removed before certain appliances can be collected. CFC's can typically be found in appliances that use a refrigerant.

The following items require a special tag:

Bushel Basket (not to exceed 60 lbs.)


Lawn Mower (push type)




Water Heaters, Stoves, Washers, Dryers


Garbage Cans (not to exceed 60 lbs.)


Auto Tires
