Trick or Treat
Thursday, October 29th
Concord Township follows the Mid Ohio Regional Planning Commission date. Most communities in central Ohio follow that date but not all. Concord township has three different school districts, (Buckeye Valley, Dublin and Olentangy) and 5 different zip codes (Delaware, Dublin, Ostrander, Plain City, and Powell) in the township. People often identify with their school district or community zip code. These communities do not all follow the MORPC trick or treat dates so in the years the dates differ there is always confusion.
We realize some communities do not want to hold trick or treat on October 29th and we respect their right to pick a different date for their community but ask that the potential confusion this may cause be considered. We live in a country where we are free to make choices and as trustees we will not infringe on the right of a community to pick their own trick or treat night.
If you choose to participate in trick or treat on Concord Township’s official night or another night please remember to be safe and have fun.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to use caution and plan ahead for Halloween festivities. Decisions on whether to participate should be made by local communities, individuals, and parents/ guardians.
Always follow current state public health orders and rules/regulations established by your local community, and check the Ohio Public Health Advisory System to determine COVID-19 risk levels in your county before making decisions about Halloween activities. Some communities may choose to cancel Halloween events, so check with local sources before making plans.
This guidance is designed to help curb the spread of COVID-19. It will be reassessed and updated as the situation evolves and we learn more in the weeks leading up to Halloween.

Republic Services Contract: All Concord Township residents have seen a $1 per month increase in your Republic Waste Services Trash/Recycling bill. The Trustees wish to address this increase. Concord Township is in year 5 of a trash/recycling contract with Republic Services. The original contract was a 3-year contract for $16.95 per month. A 3-year contract extension was signed in 2019. Year one of the extension the price held at $16.95 a month. Year two (April 1, 2020-March 31,2021) the price increased to $17.95 a month. Year three of the extension (April 1, 2021-March 31, 2022) the price will increase to $18.95 a month. At that point the contract will be expired. If you have any questions, please contact one of the Trustees.
NEW RECYCLING GUIDELINES:
ALL ITEMS TO BE EMPTY, CLEAN & DRY
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.
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

Native Prairie Planting
You might notice large amounts of white and blue flags in the turf area between Home Rd. and Dublin Rd. This is the start of a large native flower and grass planting. The Township received a grant from ODNR to transform this area into prairie. While turf is necessary for some areas of the park, this area requires an extra cost of turf management to the Township and taxpayers. However, prairies require very little maintenance. Converting a portion of the park’s turf areas to native flowers and grass can offer substantial cost savings. This will be an ongoing process and could take several years to establish fully. In the coming weeks and months you will notice the area turning brown and dying. It will be seeded in late June, and some plants will start to appear in the fall. In the process of establishing the area the Township will be working with several local groups to add signage and bird boxes.
If you would like to be involved in any part of the project please email firstname.lastname@example.org
