To Concord Township Residents: You will receive a letter whenever there is a change to the township aggregation program electric rate.   Some of you express concern that this is an increase of what you are currently paying for electric.  Please see the email below the township received from First Energy (parent company of Ohio Edison).  


As Trustees, we just wanted to make sure you have all of the information you need as you decide to participate in the aggregation program or opt out. 


Bart Johnson, Trustee 


From FirstEnergy (2023):


AKRON, Ohio – FirstEnergy Corp. (NYSE: FE) is encouraging customers of its Ohio electric companies – Ohio Edison, The Illuminating Company and Toledo Edison – to evaluate electric supply offers from competitive suppliers that fit their budget and protect against rising energy prices this summer. Due to the results of recent competitive auctions, FirstEnergy customers who rely on their electric company for all aspects of service are expected to see an increase in the price they pay for electric generation beginning June 1...


Customer bills are divided into two parts: a charge from a FirstEnergy Ohio electric company for delivering electricity to a home or business, and a separate charge for the actual electricity used by a customer. For the second component, customers can shop and choose a competitive energy supplier that may be able to offer a lower price for generation. The electric company is required to purchase electricity through a competitive auction process for “non-shopping” customers who do not choose an energy supplier, and the rate is reflected in the “price to compare” listed on their monthly bills. FirstEnergy electric companies do not control the price of generation, which is provided to customers at cost.


The prices, which update annually on June 1, are seasonal, with summer pricing in effect for the months of June through August, and winter pricing in effect for all other months...


To explore alternative electricity supplier options, customers can visit the PUCO’s Apples to Apples tool online at www.energychoice.ohio.gov.


As customers evaluate their “price to compare” (PTC) against alternative supplier offers, they should consider the price, plan structure (fixed or variable rate), contract terms and conditions, and any taxes, charges or fees that may apply. They can also explore ways to conserve energy by visiting www.firstenergycorp.com/save_energy.




Dear Concord Township Residents,


Re: Rumpke Trash Rate Increase


Starting with the April 1, 2023 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.


**Starting April 1, 2024, the third year of the Rumpke service contract, the annual CPI increase is 4.8%.  The monthly billing rate will increase to $22.49.**


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

Joe Garrett 614-206-4829

NEW RECYCLING GUIDELINES:

ALL ITEMS NEED 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.

  

     **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.
