Middleton Township provides fire, EMS and road services – including snowplowing and shoulder mowing along rural routes – as outlined under the Departments section of this site, with law enforcement provided by the Wood County Sheriff’s Department. However, newcomers should be aware there are some services commonly provided by larger municipalities that the township does not offer, including the following:

  • Trash pick-up
  • Brush pick-up
  • Recycling pick-up

These services can be privately contracted through several local providers. We suggest that you check with neighbors regarding their provider(s) or contact the township at 419-352-1480 for a list.

Note that the township does offer the following:

  • Christmas tree drop-off/disposal at the township administrative campus each January
  • Removal of roadkill deer and large animals (contact us at 419-352-1480 for assistance)
  • Streetlight repair coordination within township subdivisions (contact us at 419-352-1480 for assistance)
