Rumpke Rolling Out Recycling Trash Carts This Month

COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio – March 14, 2016 – Residents of Colerain, Ross and Springfield townships will receive their new 65-gallon, green recycling cart later this month, as part of the townships’ new contract with Rumpke Waste & Recycling.

Crews will start delivering recycling carts on March 21. All single-family and two-family structures will receive one cart. Three- and four-family structures will receive two carts. Carts are property of the township and should remain at the residence where they are delivered.  Residences that currently recycle with a Rumpke 65-gallon recycling cart should continue to use their container. Rumpke will switch the container for the new township cart in April.

Rumpke crews will also begin delivering trash carts this month to those residences that signed up for the limited service option. All trash and recycling carts should be delivered by April 4. If you don’t have your container by April 4, please contact Rumpke at 1-877-367-4191 or by emailing
