Rumpke to Handle Residential Trash & Recycling July 2020
After reviewing results of a regional bidding process, Kettering City Council voted to approve a five-year contract with Rumpke Waste & Recycling for residential refuse and recycling services beginning July 1, 2020.
The change will require zero preparation from our residents. In July, residents will automatically be enrolled with Rumpke. Rumpke will deliver new recycling and trash carts that are the same size as residents’ current receptacles. Waste Management will, in turn, remove their recycling and trash carts. Refuse and recycling collection days will remain the same; however, pickup times may change.
“We are excited to work with Rumpke. Providing quality, cost-effective service to our residents is our ultimate goal; and, Rumpke understands our mission,” said Assistant City Manager Steve Bergstresser. “We have been developing the transition plan with care to ensure our residents enjoy a smooth changeover. We will keep our residents updated throughout the process.”
Rumpke is equipped with new trucks and plenty of staff to meet Kettering’s needs. Weekly refuse and recycling collection service levels will remain the same including: regular curbside automated service; subscription house-side service; and income-eligible senior rate service.
Detailed information about the transition will be provided to residents by both the City of Kettering and Rumpke in the coming months. At this time, residents should be aware of the following:
- Rumpke will begin serving City residents July 1.
- Residents do not need to re-register to continue their current service level.
- Rumpke will deliver new recycling and trash carts that are the same size as residents’ current receptacles. Waste Management will, in turn, remove their recycling and trash carts.
- Refuse and recycle collection days will remain the same, and pickup times may change.
- Rumpke will provide customer service representatives specially trained to assist Kettering residents.
“Our family-owned company appreciates the opportunity to provide excellent service for Kettering,” said Jake Rumpke, Region Vice President. “We are also grateful for the assistance of Kettering officials. Together, we are working to ensure a seamless transition for residents. We look forward to serving this community for years to come.”
