GEORGETOWN, Ohio – July 11, 2013 – Monroe Township has entered into a new partnership with Rumpke.
The township recently entered a contract with Rumpke, making the company the exclusive waste and recycling service provider for all township residents.
Monroe Township residents will receive weekly waste collection and monthly recycling collection, as well as the use of Rumpke waste and recycling containers. In addition, Rumpke will collect one large item from Monroe Township residents, once a month, at no additional charge. Collection will occur on the residence’s scheduled trash day, during the first week of each month, beginning the week of Aug. 5. Residents should contact Rumpke at 1-877-786-7537, prior to the scheduled collection day, if participating.

Items placed at the curb in other containers or in bags will not be collected. A second cart is available at no additional cost. Residents that are unable to participate in the trash cart program because of disabilities or other barriers are encouraged to contact Rumpke at 1-877-786-7537 to learn about additional options.
