The Village of Burton has teamed up with Waste Management to offer Burton Village residents a Single Hauler Trash Program that became effective April 1, 2019. All residents will automatically be enrolled in the standard service level of a 96-gallon trash cart and a 64-gallon recycle cart at a rate of $16.50 per month. To choose a different service level, be sure to contact the Village Office at 440-834-4474. A senior rate is available. Also available is "low volume bag service." Recycling will take place every two weeks. All standard service level customers will get a recycle tote; bag customers have the option of adding recycling service at a rate of $4.50/month. Single Hauler Trash (Waste Management) Frequently Asked Questions

Please view the brochure for more details about the service.

Please note:  The Board of Public Affairs recently updated the Rules and Regulations to state that any water and sewer bill not paid by the due date (a delinquent account) AND with a balance of $500 or greater will have services shut off (please note: the bill must be LATE AND OVER $500). Payment plans are available to anyone who is having trouble paying their water/sewer bill. If you are making regularly scheduled payments on a payment plan, your account is not delinquent.

Burton Alert

Burton Village Emergency Notification System (not the same as Geauga Alerts!)

Alert SignBurton Village’s new emergency notification system, Burton Alert, enables you to receive, at no extra charge*, informational messages from the Village in the event of an emergency.  The information sent through Burton Alert is intended to help keep you informed should the Village experience a significant event such as a water main break, boil alert, public health emergency, weather emergency, etc.  Messages may cover such subjects as safety alerts and directions on what to do; the location of a shelter; evacuation orders; debris removal information; and the Village’s response to an emergency.  You can receive either a phone call or text message to a designated number, AND an email.

Sign up forms will be included in the August/September newsletter as well as in the August water bills. Forms will also be available in the Village Office soon. Plans are for the new system to be live on October 2, 2017.

You can apply on-line by downloading the Burton Alert Sign Up Form, complete it, and press the "Submit" button on the form.

*Individual text charges may apply depending on your mobile carrier.
