Welcome to the 2017 edition of the Pepper Pike Directory. As part of its civic mission to the community, the Pepper 
Pike Civic League has published the Directory for over forty years. The Directory is mailed annually in the Spring

records and/or directly from the organizations listed but the League cannot guarantee the accuracy of the Directory’s 
content. The League receives no compensation from any of the organizations listed and inclusion in the Directory

HISTORY – In 1815, sixteen pioneers settled in the area called Orange which included the present cities and villages of Pepper Pike, Orange, Moreland Hills, Woodmere, and Hunting Valley.  A township was established in 1820 with 36 voters.  By the late 1800's there was a village hall at Orange Center, now the intersection of Pinetree and SOM Center Roads.  There were nine one-room elementary schools in the area.  For high school, students went to nearby towns at a cost of 50 cents per year per pupil.

 In 1924, 250 residents of Orange signed a petition to separate and incorporate as Pepper Pike Village in order to issue bonds for water and roads.  The Van Sweringen Company developed the area for country estates and put in new roads and three traffic circles.  The Village became a city in 1970.

 There are several interesting theories about the name of Pepper Pike, but none of them can be verified.

 POPULATION – According to the 2010 census the population is 5,979.  The number of homes in Pepper Pike according to the Building Department records is 2,349.

 GENERAL STATISTICS – Pepper Pike covers approximately seven square miles.  Within its boundaries are five churches and synagogues, three private clubs, a college, the Orange Schools, the Orange Library branch, two non-profit agencies serving the needs of young people, a Senior Center, clusters of retail stores, plus office and commercial buildings.

 INCOME TAX / OTHER SOURCES OF REVENUE – An important source of revenue is the city income tax of 1%.  (A credit of 1/2 of 1% to a maximum of 1% is granted to residents who pay city income tax to another municipality where they are employed.)  Other sources of revenue include taxes on real estate, motor vehicle fuels, admissions.  Building fees, court fines, and motor vehicle licensing also provide revenue to the city.

 PROPERTY TAX RATE – For the tax year 2016 (collected in 2017) the effective tax rate for Pepper Pike is $78 per $1,000 of the taxable value of each parcel of real estate. The effective tax rate is the rate used for calculation of real estate taxes, based on the taxable value of property which is by statute equal to 35% of its fair market value as determined by the Cuyahoga County Fiscal Officer’s Office. An easier way to calculate the amount of property taxes one would pay for a house in Pepper Pike in to multiply the market value of the property by 2.42% for calendar year 2016.

 HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION – A reduction in property taxes is available to individuals 65 and older and to individuals with a disability.  Please call 216-443-7050 for more information.

 BONDS / DEBT RATING – Outstanding are $8,039,014 of Special Assessment and General Obligation Bonds and Ohio Public Works Commission loans as of January 1, 2016. The City portion of the 2016 debt service payment due is $273,806 or 32% with the Special Assessment portion paid by property owner assessments equaling $575,377 or 68%. The final maturity is 2030 for both special assessment and General Obligation Bonds. The City also has an OPWC loan that ends in 2035. Moody’s has assigned a rating of AAA on the City’s outstanding bonds.



RECYCLING:  All recyclable materials (glass, plastic, and metals) may be mixed together in the same bag.  All paper may now be included with the glass, plastic, and metals.  City Hall has bins near the service garage, to drop off papers, comingled recyclables, as well as aluminum cans for the Aluminum Cans for Burned Children program.  The following rules apply to weekly collection: 

1.     ALL recycled items must be placed inside 13-gallon or 30- gallon, blue or clear plastic recycle bags.  Small grocery store plastic bags will no longer be acceptable.  Such bags may be purchased from Heinen’s or Kredo Hardware.  

2.     Recycling bags should weigh 30 pounds or less.

Glass:             Food and beverage containers of any color, rinsed and without lids.  Broken glass should be packaged separately and so labeled

Metal:            Rinsed aluminum cans, foil, and trays are acceptable.

Paper:           Newspaper and Magazines - Corrugated Cardboard (empty boxes should be flattened) - Phone   Books - Cereal Boxes (remove liners) - Junk Mail, Beer and Pop Cartons (no foil) - Tissue, Food  and Detergent Cartons (remove plastics) - Shoe Boxes - Cigarette and Paper Egg Cartons - Gift and Toy Boxes - Paper Gift Wrap (no foil) - Greeting Cards - Cancelled Checks (we recommend  shredding first).

Plastic:          ALL plastics (#1 through #7) are acceptable. 

Some recyclables can be collapsed to permit a greater volume in each bag.  Glass, plastic, aluminum, and tin may be placed in the same plastics bags.  There is a bin for aluminum cans at City Hall, with the proceeds going to training fire fighters and recovery treatment for burned children.

YARD WASTE – The State of Ohio has mandated that yard waste cannot be deposited in landfills. Pepper Pike, therefore, does not accept grass clippings. Short grass cuttings left on the lawn are beneficial. Residents are encouraged to properly dispose of yard waste on their property by composting. Instructions on how and where to compost are available at City Hall. The City will pick up leaves if they are placed in special paper, bio-degradable bags that can be purchased at the Service Department or any hardware store. Pepper Pike will pick up bush and tree branches if bundled and tied (bundles not to exceed 4 feet in length nor 40 pounds in weight). Please call the Service Department for a special pickup. The special bags are available for $2 for a five-pack from the Service Department. For larger branches and brush, there is a Branch Clipping Program that takes place in May, July, September, and November. Place branches at the edge of your tree lawn and they will be picked up accordingly.

SCRAP TIRE ROUND-UP - Can be dropped off at the Service Department during office hours. Tires are restricted from landfills; therefore, the District round-up is the ONLY means of disposal for tires. Tires of all sizes are acceptable. Tires must be off the rims. The tires are stored at the Service Department until the District collects these only once a year.

Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) Round-up: last Friday of every month.  Drop-off hours are 8:00am – 2:00pm.  Includes any product  that is toxic, flammable, corrosive, reactive, or explosive.  Some examples of HHW are: mercury (thermostats, thermometers, NO CFL BULBS), oil-based paint (does NOT include latex paint), furniture polish, flea and tick powder, batteries (does not include alkaline batteries), metal polish, gasoline, motor oil, medications, drain cleaner, turpentine, household cleaners, pool chemicals, and bleach.  Do not mix chemicals together in the same container.  To prepare these items for collection, place them in boxes (with the box lids OPEN), weighing less than 40 pounds each

USED TECHNOLOGY: Can be dropped off at the Service Department during office hours. Items include CPUs, monitors, keyboards, and software. Computers and related equipment will either be refurbished and donated to local schools, or disassembled and the individual parts recycled. Old cell phones (phone, battery, and charger) will be packaged and donated to the Cuyahoga County Witness Protection Program and the Domestic Violence Project. Used ink cartridges can be taken to the Service Department for recycling. Used technology is stored at the Service Department for twice yearly district round-ups.

CONTAINER DROP-OFF PROGRAM – For a modest fee the Service Department will provide residents with a large (6 or 12 cubic yard) container for disposing of yard waste, household goods, etc.  Container rental starts in April and ends at the first snow fall.

WASTE OIL TANK - Containers labeled "oil" can be dropped off at the Service Department for disposal between the hours of 7:00 am and 2:30 pm.
