Does the village participate in an electric aggregate program?
The Village’s consultant, Aspen Energy, who manages our Aggregation Program, monitored the energy market to “strike” a favorable renewal electric rate for Village of Weston residents. In 2021 we secured the rate of $.0487 per kWh through supplier Dynegy, through May 2024. It is projected that the Toledo Edison Standard Service Offer rates are going to go up significantly (12.15 cent per kWh) over the next year starting this June 2023. Eligible participants may opt-in or opt-out of the Aggregation Program at no fee. Opt-Out notices were mailed out March 2021, if you Opt-ed Out of the program and believe you will be affected by the Toledo Edison rate increase contact Jay Sell with Aspen Energy at 614-884-5300 ext. 234 to enroll or Dynegy at 888-682-2170 and refer to the Village of Weston Aggregation Program.
The circumstances that led to the high utility rates began two years ago, with the severe cold snap that hit Texas, in addition, current world events along with increasing energy generation and transmission costs have only exacerbated the situation.
The Village knows and understands the value this program provides for our residents and we believe our electricity aggregation program will continue to benefit Village of Weston residents moving forward.

What services does the Village offer it's citizens?
Heavy Trash Drop-Off Day
On a Saturday (typically in May) roll off dumpsters will be available at the old bus garage lot (Broadway Ave) for Village residents to drop off heavy trash items that you normally are unable to put in your regular refuse pick-up service. No paint, tires, or hazardous materials. Proof of residency is required. Early drop-offs are strictly prohibited.
Brush Pick-Up is offered 2x/year in the Spring (1st week of April) and Fall (week before Halloween) for Village residents. No stumps, yard waste, rose/thorny bushes, or leaves are accepted. Brush cannot be bigger than 3-4" inches in diameter. Make sure all cut ends are pointed in the same direction and brought to the curb. The Village, at its discretion, will not collect entire trees or bushes as a result of work by a contractor or is of such size and multitude it surpasses the intent of brush. The Village does not pick up after storm damage unless an alert notification has gone out due to significant storm damage throughout the Village. Putting brush out to the right-of-way outside of brush pickup times is a violation of section 174.01 of the Weston Municipal Regulations which can result in a penalty if the violation is not addressed. The Wood County Landfill takes *yard waste, visit the Wood County Landfill website for more information.
Live Christmas Tree Recycling
Typically the first full week of January the Village will pick up and recycle live Christmas trees. Residents wanting to have their live trees picked up are to put them at the curb during that time and they must be free of all decorations.
Typically the end of November, based on the falling of leaves the Village offers leaf pick up for the residents. Leaves must be raked into neat piles to the curb, but not into the street and to keep storm drains clear of leaf debris.
Is there recycling service in Weston?
Through a county program 24/7 drop-off recycling dumpsters have been placed at the park on Broadway. These 24/7 dumpsters are for RECYCLING ONLY, no trash! All cardboard is required to be broken down and flattened. Bagged items must be emptied, bags are not accepted. If the bins are full will be closed and you are asked to take your recyclables with you and come back after they are emptied on Fridays, items are not to be left outside of the bins. Please read the labels posted on the bins that share the types of recyclables accepted, contaminants in the bins may cause a whole route to end up in the landfill. Those who do not follow the recycling guidelines will be caught and prosecuted. Report illegal dumping to the Solid Waste Management District at 419-354-9297. For more details visit recyclewoodcounty.org.
My neighborhood is overrun by stray cats, what can be done?
There is no county animal control, or easy solution when it comes to stray cats. Instead, the entire community does need to come together to address the community cats. Here are some resources:
The Wood County Humane Society does not receive grant funding for subsidized trap-neuter-return appointments, but Humane Ohio may, and that would be a good place to check. Otherwise, the Wood County Humane Society does offer low cost spay/neuter for community/feral cats. That includes the spay or neuter, rabies vaccine, and ear tip.
Friendly cats that can be adopted can be assessed for intake into the Wood County Humane Society shelter. They do ask for a donation to help with their care, and people can call and schedule an appointment directly with them. If no appointments are readily available, they will be placed on a wait list and called in the order they were placed on the list and as they have space. Sick or injured cats needing immediate medical care may be brought in sooner and people can call for additional information and potentially an appointment.
