Kimble Recycling & Disposal will be handling both Hiram village and township recycling as the Portage County Solid Waste Management District did not pursue a contract with these communities.
Pickup will be every Friday starting in mid-December. Cost to residents will be $6.15 monthly, with annual increases of 3% or as indicated by the national Consumer Price Index (whichever is greater) for the duration of the contract. Hiram Township Trustee Jack Groselle said the contract is between five and six years.
Curbside leaf pickup will continue in the village of Hiram until snowfall prohibits access. This pickup is for leaves only: no brush, twigs, limbs or other yard debris will be accepted.
The Hiram Village Street Department will collect Christmas trees during the month of January. Trees must be placed at the curb. All lights, ornaments, garlands and tinsel must be removed.
Hiram Township residents can bring used oil to the Hiram Township Garage for recycling from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays. Appointments are required: Call 330-569-8908 to schedule a time for used oil dropoff.

Regarding Hiram Township recycling – Will we be billed by Kimble? Will we get new recycle bins? Will Portage County Recycling pick up their blue bins. So sorry that the County is not getting Hiram’s recyclables now.
Update: Kimble will do its own billing, and will provide new bins. Portage County Solid Waste will notify residents as to when the big blue bins should be set out for pickup.
