The Village Voice

The Village of Ada publishes informational articles about Village policies and services currently offered. These articles are for informational purposes only. Further details and the complete Codified Ordinances may be found on the Village website, www.adaoh.org, or by calling the Village Offices at 419-634-4045.

Happy New Year!

The elected officials, staff and volunteers of the Village of Ada would like to take this opportunity to wish you a Happy New Year on Sunday!

Employees of the Village have been given Monday, January 2nd to celebrate the holiday. Village offices and the police department lobby will be closed to the public on those two days. Water payments may be made via Visa/MasterCard/Discover on the village’s website www.adaoh.org.

Should you have an emergency while the police department lobby is closed, please call 419-634-0010 and choose option 1 to be directed to the Hardin County Sherriff dispatch service. For the weeks of December 19th-30th, non-emergency calls to the police department may be routed through the water office between 8:00 am – 4:30 pm.

Holiday Refuse Pick Up

Republic Services pick up for both refuse and recycling will be delayed one day due to the New Year holiday. Pick up will be on Wednesday, January 4th. Please remember to bag any additional refuse and/or recycling you may have as a result of the holidays, and place beside your tote if the tote is full. For your security, please remember to break down cardboard boxes so the contents the boxes once held are not visible. A box with a picture of a television, computer, etc. sitting along the curb in front of your house tells would be thieves the new treasures now in your home.

Fresh cut Christmas tree pick up is included as part of the contract the Village holds with Republic Services, so there is no additional charge for pick up. We do ask that you make sure all lights and ornaments have been removed and if possible, cut the tree into 6 foot lengths and place the pieces next to your tote at the curb.

A popular alternative to having a cut Christmas tree picked up with your refuse is placing it in a natural setting to provide winter habitat for birds, squirrels and fish. If you have land available, you may be able to leave the tree near a wooded area for birds and squirrels. Trees may also be placed in ponds for the benefit of the fish population. If you are keen to those ideas, please be sure you have permission from the property owner before placing a tree on any property.
