Republic Fuel Surcharge
Beginning with your second quarter of 2022 invoice, Republic will be adding a temporary fuel surcharge. This surcharge, as stated in the contract, is added when diesel fuel reaches or exceeds $4 per gallon on average over a three-month period. The amount is determined for the billing cycle based on the diesel average for our area and may fluctuate per billing cycle. The temporary surcharge will remain as a line item until the average price of diesel is $4 or less per gallon and will be removed three months after the average is less than $4 per gallon.
Trash Service Options
The levels of service will be like what you had in the past. All services will be invoiced quarterly:
Unlimited ($16.64/month) – Residents will receive a 96-gallon waste cart. Place your waste in the cart. Any extra waste may be placed in bags or bundles outside of the cart. Bulk collection is included.
Limited ($15.97/month) – Residents will receive a 96-gallon waste cart. All of your waste must fit inside the cart with the lid closed. There will be an extra charge for waste set outside of the cart.
Senior Citizen ($14.37/month) – This service is the same as the Limited Service with the exception that head of household residents over 65 years old will receive a discounted rate. The account name must be in the head of household’s name. Senior residents must contact Republic to request the rate.
Bag Service – Low-volume generators may continue to purchase rolls of Republic Services bags for $3 per bag (in rolls of 10) by contacting Republic Services at (330) 834-4969. There will be an extra charge for any material not fitting inside the bags. Those with bag service may add weekly recycling for $6.47/month.
Recycling – All residents signing up for the Unlimited, Limited and Senior Citizen service will receive a 65-gallon recycling cart, which will be collected weekly on the same day as your waste.

Yard Waste Disposal
Yard waste materials consists of grass, clippings, leaves and twigs/branches.
Yard waste can be disposed of in the following methods:
- Your trash container, bagged, or bundled just as now and in accordance to your service level.
- Yard waste can also be directly taken to the City’s yard waste facility at 5383 Massillon Road. Grass clippings should be separated from other yard waste.
- Grass clippings and leaves can be mulched in place which is the most environmentally friendly.
A curbside yard waste program was considered; however, it was not accepted due to a large cost increases (adding this item would have increased the monthly cost to $22.27, a 61% increase, for a mandatory service, or $25.90, 87% increase for an optional service). The city will continue to review options. Our hope is that a separate, more affordable yard waste program can be developed at a later date.
