The Sylvania Township Road and Service Department is reminding residents that Monday, Sept. 12 will be the first day of a one-time sweep of Sylvania Township streets to pick up brush which may have accumulated through the summer and the late-August storm.
It also will be the first day for the collection of unwanted household items.
Rob Nash, superintendent of the department, said it is a good idea to have all items at curbside by Sunday night, Sept. 11.
Tree limbs, branches and other brush should be separated from household items and not left in the street.
The pickup is not meant for lot clearing or tree removal. Accumulated limbs and branches should be no more than 6 ft. in length or 6 in. in diameter.
Sylvania Township has contracted with Archbold Refuse Service Inc for the household item pickup. Those items, too, should be left at the curb. Items which will be collected are bicycles, bundled books and papers, rolled carpeting (no longer then five feet), empty containers and drums.
Furniture and appliances (without refrigerants) will also be collected. If a piece of furniture has legs longer than 12 inches, the legs should be removed. Also to be collected are mattresses and box springs, miscellaneous (non-hazardous) loose material placed indisposable containers and toys.
