The first round of local yard sales will take place this weekend for Chillicothe’s annual Community Yard Sale Weekend program. The program allows city residents to hold a yard sale without paying the required $5.00 permit fee. A neighborhood’s yard sale weekend takes place the weekend prior to that neighborhood’s large item collection week.
The first yard sale weekend, from Friday, May 26th through Sunday, May 28th, is for neighborhoods with Monday trash collection. That means yard sales this weekend will take place in the city’s east end, in neighborhood’s east of Watt Street and just north of East Main Street.
There is a garbage collection route map on the city’s website, chillicotheoh.gov, to help you know which parts of the city will be holding yard sales over the next five weekends. Just go the “Departments” tab at the top of the page and then choose the “Service & Waste” option.
The first week for Chillicothe’s Large Item Collection Service begins at the start of next week. Those with Monday trash collection are encouraged to have their items placed on the curb in front of their home by 7:00 a.m. Monday, May 29th.
The full schedule and rules for Chillicothe Large Item Collection and the Community Yard Sale Weekends can be found at Chillicotheoh.gov

On a related note, the Ross County community of Adelphi will hold its annual Community Yard Sale Weekend during the first weekend of June. Sales will be held throughout the village from Friday, June 2nd through Sunday, June 4th.
