If you would like to have larger items picked up curbside, make sure to let us know at least 48- hours before your regularly scheduled collection. A few notes:

  • We cannot do curbside pickups of televisions larger than 32 inches.

Residential Garbage Removal in Medora FAQs:

Do you offer household hazardous waste disposal?

Per federal law, Rumpke cannot accept hazardous materials including:

  • Paint

  • Antifreeze

  • Freon

  • Batteries

  • Fluorescent light bulbs

  • Combustible materials like gasoline and used motor oil

  • Any other items identified with “Danger” or “Poison”, including pool chemicals, insecticides, and some cleaning supplies

The best way to dispose of such items is to use them up as intended. One thing you should never do is throw them out in the trash or down the drain. This is not just harmful to the environment, but can also cause dumpster and trash truck fires, especially during warmer weather.

Jackson County does accept hazardous waste materials for free at the Seymour Department of Public Works. Accepted items include: 

  • Household cleaning chemicals

  • Yard and garden products including fertilizer

  • Fuel

  • Mercury-containing devices like thermometers

  • Fluorescent and CFL bulbs

  • Other household chemicals (must be signed in) 

You can also try to donate items like leftover paint and cleaning supplies to nonprofit organizations such as homeless shelters or local schools. After all, the two other Rs before recycling are “reduce” and “reuse!”

How do I schedule bulk trash removal, such as for moving or renovations?

For bulk trash collection, we recommend our dumpster rental service. With a open-top container, you can discard large volumes of junk from spring cleaning or your home construction project. Our dumpster sizes range from 15 to 40 cubic yards. Call us ahead of time, so we can determine the best dumpster for you, as well as advise you of any items that may or may not be accepted at the landfill. 

Our dumpsters are durably constructed to handle commercial waste, so commercial customers can take advantage, too. 

How do I schedule garbage service?

Start by filling out our service request form online. Once you’ve indicated what sort of trash and garbage removal you’re in need of, we’ll work with you to find the right pricing and waste pickup schedule for you. 

What is the price for weekly trash collection? 

We offer competitive pricing for household waste management. Call us at 1-800-828-81717 so we can discuss your particular needs.

How do I find my trash pickup schedule?

You’ll be assigned a once-a-week curbside trash and recycling pickup day when you register for our services. Holiday schedules may vary, so check with us online to see how you might be affected.

How do I get recycling?

Contact our customer service team to see if curbside recycling is available for your household. Rumpke accepts a wide variety of common household items, including:

  • Plastic bottles, jugs and tubs

  • Glass bottles and jars
