Garbage & Recycling


  • Avoid parking on the street on your collection day. Parked cars often block access and result in missed collection.
  • Rumpke will collect one bulky item per week, such as a mattress, couch or appliance. Please call Rumpke at least 24 hours before your pick-up day to schedule a bulk item pickup. Rumpke’s team may be reached at 1-800-828-8171. 
  • According to Federal law, Rumpke is not permitted to accept batteries, tires, liquids, combustible items or any hazardous material. Please contact Metro Solid Waste Management Services at 502-574-5810 for disposal options.
  •  Recyclables should be placed loose in your green 65-gallon recycling cart. Please do not bag recyclables. 
  • Yard waste should be placed in clearly marked yard waste containers or compostable paper bags. Only shrubbery, grass, weeds, leaves and sticks are accepted in the City’s yard waste program.
