In August 2019, Rumpke will begin automated rubbish collection. Single family residents will receive one (1) 96-gallon rubbish cart from Rumpke. Rumpke will deliver the cart during the last week of July 2019.
Currently, residents are responsible for providing their own trash containers. Containers can be plastic bags or metal or plastic cans designed for trash collection. Maximum weight may not exceed 50 pounds and be no larger than 32 gallons in size. Paper bags and cardboard boxes are not acceptable as rubbish containers and will not be collected. Neither the city nor Rumpke are responsible for damage to containers or lids.
Reminder: mattresses, box springs and upholstered furniture (couches, chairs, etc.) must be wrapped in plastic for health reasons. Plastic bags/wrap can be purchased at local storage facilities or hardware stores. See our Heavy & Bulky Refuse page for a photo example.
