The Council has approved a temporary residential trash contract with Old Mill Sons (Bremen, OH).  Waste Management has provided confirmation that their last service day will be Monday, August 27,2018. All Waste Management equipment will be removed from the Village on this day (this includes the green bins).
The trash pick-up day of Monday mornings will not change with the new contractor. All customers billed for trash pick-up will be able to get a bin at no cost for the first year of service with Old Mill Sons. Per the tentative agreement, in years 2 and 3 of the contract, Old Mill Sons will charge a $2.00/month rental fee for bins.
An additional monthly rate discount has been proposed by Old Mill Sons for qualifying "senior citizen" customers. Policies are being developed for applications for the discount and any additional information will be distributed once a permanent contract is agreed upon at the next regular Council meeting, Monday, September 10, 2018 and once Council approves any sanitation rate adjustments.

Our Community

Incorporated in 1851, the Village was established along a canal route for transporting goods as part of Ohio's early canal system. The Village sits at the Rushcreek and Hocking River convergence. Major transportation systems include rail and State Route 33. Our Village is the gateway to the Hocking Hills region, linking southeast Ohio to the Greater Columbus metropolitan corridor. Within just a few miles from the Village are tourist attractions such as Wahkeena Nature Preserve, Clearcreek Metro Park, and Hide-a-way Hills.

Berne Union Local Schools is a key element to the Sugar Grove and greater Berne Township community. Each year, the Music Boosters and volunteers put on the "Sugar Grove Stars & Stripes" (annual Independence Day celebration). In the summer and fall, it is common to hear the Berne Union Golden Rockets Marching Band performing along Main Street. In late spring, the Village's Main Street is also decorated by the High School Senior Class with the annual community-supported toilet-papering.

Sugar Grove is also home to Veterans' Community Park, which offers a shelter house for rental of family reunions and other celebrations in the summer, as well as two baseball fields. The Village also maintains the historic Sugar Grove Cemetery located on Buckeye Road, just outside the corporation limits.

The Village is home to a local barber shop, a bar & grill, family-owned grocery store, three churches, U.S. Post Office, Columbia Gas offices, and several small businesses.
