Items That Will NOT be Collected:
Rumpke does NOT collect waste or rubble resulting from building demolitions, remodeling, repairs, or construction. Private collection of these items should be arranged by the property owner.
Rumpke will NOT accept motor oil, tires, vehicle batteries, anti-freeze, brake fluid, paint, shingles, tar paper, blacktop or any other hazardous or potentially hazardous substances. Private collection of these items should be arranged by the property owner.
Large Item Pick-up:
Large items will be picked up the same day as your normal garbage collection after the normal pickup and schedule with Rumpke at least 24 hours in advance. You must set these items out to the curb after 7:00 PM the day before your normal garbage day. Upholstered furniture (including mattresses and box springs) must be wrapped in plastic. Items that contain freon will have to be removed by a licensed person and tagged as such before pick-up. Cutting pipes and discharging of freon is against Federal Law.
Yard waste will be picked up with refuse collection and should be placed in cans at curb after 7:00 PM the day before scheduled pick-up.
Fall leaves will be collected at curb side on Mondays and Tuesdays, October through December (except holidays) weather permitting and at other times with personnel and time permitting. Do not rake leaves into the gutters; it is not possible for the equipment to get in such tight areas. Grass clippings, sticks, and rocks can damage and clog the equipment. These piles will not be picked up.
Limbs and Brush
Tree limbs and brush will be picked up on Mondays, January through September (except holidays). If scheduled Monday falls on a holiday, it will be re-scheduled for the following Monday. Limbs should be set at curb side after 7:00 PM Sunday night. Limbs should be laid in same direction and no larger than five inches thick. Limbs blocked by autos or stacked with other items will NOT be collected. Stumps and/or root balls will NOT be accepted. Residents having large amounts of limbs will be required to rent an over-night truck for self-loading (see below). The Village will not pick up limbs due to private contractor doing tree work. Contact Public Works at 513-733-0957 or firstname.lastname@example.org to notify them of any limbs to be collected.
The Village makes trucks available to residents on a first-come, first-served basis for a small fee during evening or weekend hours to load large quantities of refuse. This service is not available during the snow season due to the plowing equipment being installed on the trucks. The list of items the Village will not accept is the same as Rumpke’s. To schedule or check on availability of a truck, call Town Hall at 761-1124.
Household Hazardous Waste Collection:
Hamilton County Environmental Services (513-946-7734) will collect hazardous waste. Contact them by phone or visit www.hcdoes.org for more information.
Snow Emergency Guidelines

With or without a snow emergency, primary streets (designated as snow emergency routes – see list below) will be plowed and treated first, secondary streets will be plowed when all primary streets have been cleared. Even if a snow emergency is not declared, it is advisable to park your cars off the street if snow is expected.
Snow Emergency Routes
A vehicle parked on a snow emergency route at the time the snow emergency is declared and when it is between the hours of 6:00 AM and 8:00 PM shall be removed within 3 hours.
A vehicle parked on a snow emergency route at the time the snow emergency is declared and when it is between the hours of 8:00 PM and 6:00 AM of the following day, shall be removed prior to 9:00 AM following the time such snow emergency is declared.
A vehicle found parking in violation may be removed or towed away at the owner’s expense.
