Rumpke offers tips for debris removal

Rumpke is offering tips to make sure your yard debris and food waste are picked up in a timely manner.

Be sure to contact your local municipalities to learn about special disposal options in your community. To ensure collection from Rumpke, please place yard and home debris into bundles no longer than 4 ft. each and weighing no more than 50 lbs. each.

Customers may also place these materials in regular trash containers weighing no more than 50 lbs. each. If possible, place limited amounts of debris at the curb each week. Charges may apply please contact your local Rumpke office for clarification.

Rumpke officials say they have been collecting four times more waste since last week's windstorm due to customers throwing out rotting food and cleaning up fallen trees. However, they added that all pick up schedules should be back to normal.
