Village Council Agenda



The Village of Archbold is committed to providing the very best Solid Waste services to the residents of Archbold at the lowest price possible.  Archbold’s Solid Waste Program includes:  weekly curbside refuse pick-up, bi-weekly curbside recycling, monthly curbside 2-Bulk item pick-up, bi-weekly curbside brush pick-up as well as a yard waste disposal site and a recycling site.

Archbold Village Council is sensitive to the needs of residents for unlimited bulk pick-up, but it’s essential to understand demand as well as cost verses benefit at this high level of service.  The monthly residential cost would go from $9.50 to $13.50 to cover unlimited bulk pick-up.  That means residents that can manage bulk pick-up needs under a limited structure would be subsidizing unlimited bulk pick-up for a few residents.  The best approach is to ask residents to manage extra bulk pick-up needs on their own.

Effective January 2019; two (2)-Bulk Household Items or Limited Bulk Pick-up will continue on the Third Friday of the month on the North side of the tracks and on the Second Thursday of the month on the South side of the tracks.


Bulk Household Items are in addition to regular bagged garbage.  Bagged garbage is not considered a bulk household item.  A list of common Bulk Household Items is available on the Village Website or by contacting ARS.  When in doubt as to whether something is considered a bulk household item, please contact ARS.  Items that are not considered bulk household items will be left at the curb.  Residents are not permitted to leave items at the curb and will be required to store them until the next bulk item pick-up or schedule removal by other means.

Council will be considering an increase of the monthly residential refuse charge in 2020, which is needed to bring the general fund subsidy closer to 20% of the total cost.  This increase was considered in 2019, but deferred until 2020.  The increase in 2020 would be on top of an increase, if unlimited bulk pick-up were reinstated.  Please contact the Village with comments or suggestions regarding the Solid Waste Program.
