Trash Disposal Guidelines

Trash Disposal Guidelines

The annual "Spring Clean-Up" dumpsters will not be available this year. Residents are asked to properly dispose of their bulk waste at the curbside following Rumpke guidelines.

  • New Coronavirus guidelines from Rumpke:
    • Bag all trash. This reduces employee exposure to items like used tissues and other personal hygiene products.
    • Place trash at the curb the night before scheduled service.
    • Wipe down your trash or recycling receptacle or hose it out periodically.
    • Continue to place recycling in your bin loose. Ensure you only place the correct items in your recycling container.
    • Make certain all recyclable bottles, jugs, and cans are empty and free of liquid.
    • Remember items like trash bags and grocery bags, tissues, napkins and paper cups aren’t accepted as recycling materials.
    • Properly dispose of medical sharps. Medical sharps used to administer medication to individuals or pets should be placed in a rigid plastic container, clearly marked “Sharps”, sealed shut and placed in trash.
    • Rumpke are experiencing higher call volumes at this time. If you have a question, please consider contacting Rumpke Customer Service via email at Rumpke.com or through Facebook private message.
  • Rumpke’s service includes collection of six, 32-gallon cans or bags per pick-up (may vary by service region). Cans and bags should not exceed 50 pounds.
  • Contact Rumpke at least 48 hours before your regularly scheduled collection to request a large item pick-up for acceptable large items, and/or excessive amounts of trash.
  • Television sets cannot exceed 32 inches for curbside pick-up. Any mattress or upholstered furniture must be completely sealed in disposable plastic for removal. Additional fees may apply.
  • Freon containing appliances require special handling procedures prior to pick-up. Please complete a refrigerant recovery statement and contact Rumpke for more details.

  • According to Federal law, Rumpke is not permitted to accept batteries, tires, liquids, combustible materials or any items identified as hazardous.

  • Bulky materials including drywall, concrete, bricks, dirt or rocks are not acceptable.

  • Rumpke accepts yard waste at the curbside along with regular trash, but this material is not composted. Branches must be cut into short segments and bundled to be accepted. 

  • For composting consider delivering to a local composter such as Price-Farms Organics or Kurtz Brothers. There is no fee for drop off at the facilities.
