Dear Concord Township Residents,

Re: Rumpke Trash Rate Increase

Starting with the April 1 bill, you will see an increase in you trash and recycling collection rates from Rumpke. Your rate for the next year will be $21.45 per month.  When the Township Trustees put this contract out to bid in late 2021 early 2022 we were facing inflation rates that were at a 40 year high.  Our concern was that a 3-year contract could reflect those historic inflation rates projected over the three-year contract.  Those concerns lead us to bid the contract with the yearly rate increase tied to the Consumer Price Index for Water/Sewer and Trash Collection Services.  We felt this was the fairest way to bid the contract to avoid companies projecting a 10% yearly inflation rate over the life of the contract. 

Starting April 1, 2023, we are in the second year of that contract.  The CPI increase for Water/Sewer and Trash Collection Services is 4.42%.  I have included the link to the data that was used for this calculation. https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/CUSR0000SEHG

As a reminder, Rumpke does offer a senior citizen discount if you are 62 years old or older.  If you qualify and are not taking advantage of that discount, please call Rumpke at 800-828-8171.

If you have any questions about the trash collection contract, you can reach out to any of the Concord Township Trustees.

Concord Township Trustees  

Spring in Concord Township is rapidly approaching!   Concord Township's prairie grass field located in the Concord Township Park at the corner of Home Rd and Dublin Rd has survived another winter.  The live growing parts of prairie plants are safely below ground, awaiting warm soil to begin new growth.   Above ground, there is a covering mass of the now-dead stems and leaves of last year's vegetation called "Duff".  Prairies grow best without the retarding effects of last-year’s duff.    
For large prairies, the only effective duff removal technique, one that has been used by humans for thousands of years, is fire.  March and April are the approved prairie fire months.  Park districts, wildlife areas, and other large prairies are being burned – but only under certain conditions.  In order to safely and legally burn a prairie in Ohio, specific notification of the burn must be provided to the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.    Concord Township has obtained all required permits, has trained crews, proper prescribed fire equipment, and will be burning our prairie in March.
A prescribed prairie fire is rejuvenating and enhancing. It removes the growth-retarding duff, begins the warming of the soil, and allows newly-emerging sprouts to grow strongly without any shading.   After a fire, the blackened prairie landscape looks completely destroyed and void of any life. But prairie plants will then joyously explode out of the cleared ground in April and May.  Fires give new life to a prairie. With the cleansing fires, a new prairie season starts.

Concord Township Celebrates Ohio Township Day!

On February 1,2023, Townships celebrate the 25th anniversary of Ohio Township Day. House Bill 652, enacted in 1998, designated the first of February as Ohio Township Day and was the first year in which it was celebrated.  

This day has been set aside to recognize the hard work and dedication of township trustees and fiscal officers who promote grassroots government. As the first form of government in Ohio, the 1,308 townships across the state serve nearly 35% of Ohio’s population. 

Road maintenance, fire protection and EMS service, zoning and land use planning, and parks and recreation provide an example of only a few of a township’s responsibilities, which are governed by the Ohio Revised Code. 

Concord Township serves about 12,000 residents.

Recent changes in recycling markets have forced Regional Processing Centers to eliminate some of the items they will accept. The list below is the limit of what should be placed in your recycle cart. Other items may be recyclable, just not in this program.


     **NEW - Plastic tubs (i.e. margarine & sour cream) are now permitted! **


     Newsprint and mixed paper. No tape and place loosely in cart.


     Bottles and Jugs - #1 PETE and #2 HDPE with lids removed. Numbers 3 through 7 are acceptable but not desirable.


     Bi-metal, steel, and aluminum food and beverage containers


     Cardboard and Old Corrugated Containers (OCC); dry and broken down. Do not put "boxes-inside-boxes. Break them down flat and tie with a string or twine (not tape).


     Gable top containers from gravy, milk, broth, and whipping cream


STICK TO THE LIST! WHEN IN DOUBT, THROW IT OUT! It’s no longer the quantity of what we recycle. Quality of clean items that are placed loosely in your recycling container will be the focus. For additional information, please log on to www.summitreworks.com






Volunteer Energy was awarded the low bid supplier for township electric for the Ohio Edison portion of the township starting July 2020.  (Switching back to Ohio Edison for generation as Volunteer Energy announced bankruptcy as of April 2022).
