Welcome to the City of Chillicothe...

Where the Rails Cross the River
 Mayor’s Message:   

 Last year, the City Council approved spending funds for a city-wide clean-up and recycling day.   The response on recycling was outstanding . . .  more than 240 cars came to the IVC high school parking lot to drop off computer monitors, TVs and other electronics.  Separately, a tire collection program was held at the same location.  A lot of people took advantage of both programs. 

Fewer city residents used the curbside trash pickup.  It was intended for those folks who wanted to clean up the garage, basement or backyard.  It still was considered a success, and city hall has had a number of calls from residents asking if there will be another clean-up program this year.

I’m happy to report the City Council approved a curb-side city wide clean up scheduled for Saturday, April 25.  Trash and debris will be picked up beginning at 10 a.m.    At the same time, a recycling program for electronics will take place at the IVC high school parking lot.  (Only certain electronics will be accepted, and NO TIRES OR TVs will be accepted this year).   The recycling program is open to everyone within the IVC school district boundaries.  NOTE:  Trash pickup will be at front curb only – no alley pickups.  Recycled material must be dropped off at the high school.

I’m also happy to report that on Earth Day, Wednesday April 22, the City of Chillicothe will be announcing a new project with Wigand Disposal for expanded recycling in the City.  More on that later.

Warm weather brings the opportunity to get outside and get our property and our neighborhoods cleaned up and looking good for the months ahead.  The City is working to make this easier for residents . . . and we encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities.

Do something good for your community –
