Welcome to Madison Township
in Lake County, Ohio!
2012 - $37,504.80 2014 - $12,501.60
With sincere regret, the Board of Madison Township Trustees are announcing the permanent closing of the Recycling Drop off Site located behind Fire Station #2 on Hubbard Road.
The Recycling Drop off Site will permanently close at sunset on January 4, 2015
The closing of the recycling site is due to State of Ohio revenue reductions, Lake County discontinuing the recycle grant program, and recent increased costs for disposal of recyclable materials.
The Board of Lake County Commissioners announced in 2009 that they would reduce the amount of money the Lake County Solid Waste District would give the communities over the next five years to operate recycling centers. As of October 14, 2014 only three communities in Lake County still have recycling drop off sites. Those three communities are Madison Township, Concord Township and Wickliffe. The City of Wickliffe will be shutting down their site effective January 31, 2015. The following are the recycling grant amounts given to Madison Township by the Lake County Solid Waste District which show the reduction in the grant over the past five years.
2010 - $62,508.00
2011 - $50,006.40 2013 - $25,003.20 2015 - $0 County Discontinues the Program
2012 - $37,504.80
2014 - $12,501.60
Madison Township has contacted the various trash haulers that
service the Madison community who provide curbside recycling pickup.

Redbird Road Construction:
The Board of Madison Township trustees were given the authorization by the Ohio Public Works Commission (OPWC) this month to proceed with the final phase of the Redbird Road Improvement Project.
State funding for this final phase was authorized in July of 2014 and Madison Township has one year to start the project from the date of the authorization. The final phase, which is known as "Redbird Road Phase III", involves the widening , re-paving, and construction of a left turn lane at Chapel & Redbird Roads. The final phase of this project will begin at Kirkwall Street and proceed south to Chapel Road.
Because of the timing of the funding from OPWC, Township Trustees have decided to delay the start of Redbird Road Phase III until June of 2015 when school is out of session. The Board of Trustees feel this is the best way to proceed so that the schools will have minimal, if no, disruption. The project would be scheduled for completion prior to the 2015-2016 school year. If any resident has a question about this project, you can contact the Township Administrator, Lee Bodnar, at 440-428-5128.
