We have the greatest customers in the world! After the tragic passing of Rumpke Driver David Evans, the community rallied in support of our team by topping their trash and recycling with flowers, notes, drawings and goody bags. Your generosity and compassion lifted our spirits during this emotional time. Our drivers brought many of your gifts back to our office as a tribute to David. Our family of 3,000+ team members is incredibly humbled. Thank you.

On July 30, 2018, tragedy struck the Rumpke team and our local community. Driver David Evans was hit by a passing motorist, while servicing customers in Middletown, Ohio. He was care-lifted from the scene and passed away at the hospital. He was 52. David joined the Rumpke team in 2003. He provided service in Middletown, Mason and Liberty Township. His customers often complimented his professionalism and positive attitude, and co-workers respected his work ethic and commitment to his craft. We extend our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to his family and friends during this incredibly difficult time. We are sincerely humbled by the outpouring of support. We have been asked how to pay tribute to David’s memory or to express appreciation for your trash and recycling drivers. Please feel free to send us a private message on Facebook or check out the Top Your Trash movement. As always, we welcome your feedback via Rumpke’s website. ( Keeping our drivers safe is extremely important. Rumpke has been diligently working to pass legislation in the states that we service to make it mandatory for motorists to slow down or move over when passing a waste and recycling truck. Ohio recently became the 17th state to adopt the “Slow Down to Get Around” law, and Kentucky, Indiana and West Virginia passed it in recent years. Thank you to all the men and women who perform essential services of trash and recycling collection. Let’s all work together to stay safe.

Slam dunk? More like a recycling airball. Sports equipment like this ball and basketball hoop don’t belong in the recycling. We removed these items from our recycling facility before it could cause damage to our sorting equipment. Please consider donating or refurbishing instead. Big thanks to DeAndre Cooper, Larry Gee and Christopher Hall. #RecyclingFailFriday
