 Curbside Recycling & Trash

Curbside recycling and trash hauling is provided through a township contract with Rumpke Waste and Recycling.  Each resident must establish an account  with Rumpke and pay a quarterly bill (12.95/mo) to receive service. 16 gallon recycling bins are provided at no additional charge and may be picked up at the Genoa Township Administration Office (5111 South Old 3C Hwy). Trash is collected in containers furnished by the resident or plastic bags.  For households with higher volume of waste, Rumpke rents extra large recycling and trash carts for an additional $2/mo.

 Drop Box Recycling

A dumpster is available for recycling drop-off at the Maintenance Complex (7049 Big Walnut Road).  Bins are typically emptied every Monday and Wednesday.  This service is provided free to the public as a result of a grant from the Delaware, Knox, Marion, Morrow Solid Waste District ​(DKMM) and Ohio Department of Natural Resources.  
One dumpster is for paper only.  Newspaper, computer, notebook, construction, brown/white grocery bags, mail, etc.  All paper goods should be placed in brown paper sacks in the dumpster (no plastic bags are allowed).
An additional bin for paper, provided by ABITIBI Paper Recycling, is also available for separated materials. ​​

The Maintenance Department holds Leaf Drop Off Days the month of November.  During that time, yard waste can be dropped off at the maintenance building located at 7049 Big Walnut Rd.
Finally, Rumpke will also accept yard waste at the curbside along with regular trash, but this material is not composted as it is at Price-Farms Organics.
