Recycling and Trash

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 ($15.39 per month) to receive service. A discount is available for seniors and special garage-side collection is available to those with physical limitations.

Red 16 gallon recycling bins are provided at no additional charge and may be requested by contacting the Genoa Township Maintenance Department at 614-568-2080.  

Trash is collected in containers furnished by the resident or plastic bags. For households with higher volumes of waste, Rumpke rents recycling carts for an additional $2 per month and trash carts for $3 per month.

Bulk waste will be collected by Rumpke, but requires 24 hours advance notice and proper preparation.  Tips for disposal of hazardous waste can be found here and information on yard waste disposal can be found here

Trash and recycling are collected between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. every Friday unless delayed to Saturday by a holiday.

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.
