Reminder of new trash hauler

As a reminder, the city of Tallmadge went out to bid for trash hauling and is in the process of making a switch to Kimble Companies beginning Jan. 1, 2021. Recently residents received a bill from Republic Services with billing dates extending past Dec. 31, 2020. Note that bills should only be paid through the end of 2020 and should not include payment for 2021 services.

2020 Leaf Season will begin Nov. 2

The city of Tallmadge will once again offer leaf pickup this fall. For the safety of our employees, crews have been limited causing a change to our regular program. This year pickup will take place by sections during specific weeks. If you have questions about leaf collection, contact the Street Department at 330-633-5130. For pickup sections and dates, go to

Tips to Assure Pickup

  • Have leaves raked out to the curb by Monday at 6:30 a.m. the week of pickup
  • Keep piles as close to the edge of the road as possible
  • Do not block fire hydrants, mailboxes, culverts or catch basins
  • Do not put grass clippings or branches in leaf piles
  • Once a pass has been made, the crews will not be back until the next scheduled pickup
