Lewis County Solid Waste offers:
One of our most popular programs to help clean up your property starts today, and runs through Sept. 29. The free disposal voucher program offers Lewis County residents an opportunity to dispose of up to 1,000 pounds of household refuse at no charge. The voucher is good for one trip to one of the Lewis County transfer stations, and cannot be used for tires, appliances, computers, televisions or hazardous waste. Once you print your voucher, it is only good for 30 days, so make sure you are ready to use it.
Reminder: Lewis County Burn Permits valid through June 30, 2018. Two-day permits may be issued after that date, depending on conditions.
Note: no burning within city boundaries & urban growth areas in several towns including Toledo.

Toledo School District posted:
In today's world, we have to consider situations that we never would have imagined could take place at school. Toledo staff have been trained in a procedure designed to increase survival in the event of an active shooter at school. Following the advice of Lewis County Sheriff's Office, FEMA and Homeland Security, we chose the ALICE program. ALICE stands for "Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, Evacuate".
We will have a parent information night 7 PM May 24 at Toledo High School to present the components of ALICE prior to training students next Fall. THS counselor Katie Gale is also our ALICE trainer. She will be on hand to share the important aspects of this program and to answer questions. We hope that you'll take this opportunity to learn about how we plan and train to respond to the unthinkable and how we'll keep our students safe.
