REPUBLIC SERVICES: 
Effective Feb. 1, 2021, Republic Services has set up email dispatch263@republicservices.com to be used for Village of Oak Harbor residents to communicate directly with their local dispatch team in regards to service issues and concerns.  Billing questions, new account setup should be addressed through the normal channels.

ZONING REMINDER
:  Zoning permits are required for a variety of situations such as new homes, signs, sheds, fences and swimming pools (if the pool has a filter).  For additional information please contact the administrative office at (419) 898-5561.  The zoning permit application, fees and the zoning code is available online.

The CURBSIDE BRUSH PICKUP PROGRAM is a service that is provided with no taxes or user fees charged to  support its operation.  The original intent of the program was to dispose of limbs and branches  downed by storms or natural tree pruning.  We have seen entire trees cut, landscaping debris and  garden waste put out for collection.  The Village can no longer support the magnitude of this type of  service and not charge for the operation of it.  This service costs the Village in excess of $75,000 per  year.  Therefore, the Village will only collect branches and limbs downed by winds or natural pruning as  part of its curbside service.  If you have a tree removed, have your contractor take the brush as well.  Once  the Christiansen Road property is reclaimed and authorization is granted by the Ohio EPA, a green waste transfer site may be erected for green waste disposal.   (Posted 04/14/2015, 03/27/2018)

CURBSIDE LEAF PICKUP (Begins approximately during the month of October each year):
Village crews have begun curbside leaf pickup.  Please rake leaves to the edge of the pavement in rows (not piles).  Please contact Public Works Department with questions at (419) 898-1823.  Pickup will continue as weather allows.  (Posted 11/01/2017,03/27/2018)
