recycle park hours of operation

Chester Recycle Park, located at 12535 Chillicothe Road, is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to accommodate residents' recycling needs.  Bins are typically emptied on Fridays and Mondays, and the Park is closed when the bins are full, in order to minimize windblown trash.  

Please remember, Chester Township receives revenue for paper and cardboard that is placed into the "paper only" bins on the right-hand side of the recycle drive.  If you are able to segregate your paper/cardboard from other recyclables, it is appreciated.  


Dear Chester Residents,

This is a public service announcement to inform our residents regarding an ODOT-planned resurfacing and related work for Mayfield Road (Route 322) from Heath Road to County Line Road this construction season.

Kokosing Inc. was awarded the bid; preliminary drainage work is scheduled to commence on or around May 23, 2016 and last for 5-6 weeks. During this time, Mayfield Road between Caves Road and County Line will be closed every day to local and commercial traffic. Detour routes will be posted by ODOT.  Please take alternate routes if necessary during these dates.

After the drainage work, the resurfacing phase will begin.  Traffic will be managed by a mobile work zone where it will be maintained throughout the resurfacing project.  It is scheduled to be completed by the end of October.  Please visit, ODOT's traffic conditions and announcement web page, or ODOT Construction Projects to find information regarding the closure.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Chester Road Department at 440.729.9110.

Thank you,
Road Superintendent
