Please help us keep the city clean and the streets free from litter. We have received several complaints this year of tires or furniture being dumped in our city, especially in alleyways. We need your help! If you see someone dumping tires or any suspicious activity, report it immediately to the police and give as much information as possible such as the exact location and a vehicle description. This illegal dumping is more than an inconvenience to residents navigating the alleys, this blight is an eyesore in your neighborhood and to the city as a whole with a negative impact on our image and property values. Additional hours spent cleaning up these messes are a strain on the City’s tight budget. Help us keep things clean by reporting illegal dumping immediately.
Remember, if using trash cans they are not to exceed 30 gallons and waste wheelers are not to exceed 95 gallons. All garbage should be placed in a watertight container—that is a can or wheeler with a lid. Shrubs or loose material placed at the curb for collection should be placed in a receptacle or tied in bundles not exceeding four feet in length and not exceeding seventy-five pounds. Trash and recycling should not be put out earlier than 5 p.m. the evening before your collection day and containers must be brought in the day of collection. The Rumpke waste wheelers are coded and can be tracked to the assigned address. To report a missed pickup or if your Rumpke can needs to be replaced, call Rumpke at 859.472.7339.
