Hicksville Transfer Station

07256 Gingrich Rd
Hicksville, OH  43526
419-542-8707

The Hicksville Transfer Station is open on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays April to November and on the 1st Saturday December to March, 8:00 am to 2:00 pm.  Everyone is required to sign-in if recycling and complete a receipt (full name) if unloading waste.

Residential waste should be unloaded into a 45 CY container. The transfer station does NOT accept yard waste, liquids of any kind, batteries, tires, or anything containing Freon.  Appliances: Refrigerator, Freezer, Air Conditioner (only if certified Freon free) Washer, Dishwasher, Dryer, Stove, Water Conditioner, Water Tank or Water heater are an additional charge of $15.00 per appliance.

Customers are charged to unload into the container at $7.00/CY.  A garbage bag of trash is $1.50 per each bag.
The County Public Work Crew Supervisor will measure trailers, trucks, wagons, etc. to determine the charge.  In general, a small pickup would be $14.00; a full size pickup would be $21.00.  Any waste above the side rails of the truck would be an additional $7.00.  Trailers and wagons are measured: Width X Length X Height and then converted to CYs to determine the charge.  Example: A trailer is 7 x 12 x 2 (divided by 27) = 6.22 (rounded to 6) 6 x $7/cy = $42 for that trailer. 

The recycling trailer is also onsite and residents may bring their recycling, free of charge.  Recycling items should be separated and not bagged together. Mixed recycling is contaminated and becomes waste.

The following items are accepted: aluminum, steel cans (please have cleaned), newspapers (should be bundled and tied or in a brown paper sack), corrugated cardboard (should be flattened), press board (should be flattened) loose and shredded paper (bagged), plastic (milk jugs, detergent bottles, pop and water bottles) cell phones and computers.  We do NOT accept: Glass, Styrofoam, aluminum foil, aluminum baking pans, plastic silverware, prescription bottles, kitty litter containers, egg cartons, or plastic food containers.  We will reject steel cans that have food inside.

Residents are asked to be cognate of the flow of traffic on Gingrich Road. Workers at the transfer station will direct vehicles within the transfer station boundaries.  Areas are designated for recycling and unloading. All vehicles wanting to unload waste must pull into the stoned area at the shed to pay first, before unloading.  Workers are normally available to assist the residents unload.
