Changes for Trash, Recycling in Harrison Township
HARRISON TOWNSHIP, Ohio – Harrison Township and Rumpke Waste & Recycling are partnering to enhance trash and recycling services for residents. Starting Aug. 1, 2018, all trash and recycling will be picked up with automated service by Rumpke.
For automated service, all materials must now fit inside the associated Rumpke cart. Residents will continue using a green 65-gallon cart for recycling.
* There are three steps for placing carts out for collection:
- Place items inside the cart and close the lid
- Face the opening of the cart toward the street (face handle away)
- Place the cart within 3 ft. of the street and 3 ft. away from objects or obstructions
If residents have extra trash or recycling, additional carts are available for rent from Rumpke. Harrison Township also sells special “overage” bags from the township office at 5945 N. Dixie Dr., which may be placed out for collection on service day. All other materials left outside the carts will not be collected.
Rumpke will collect up to three (3) bulky items on collection day. Examples include furniture, appliances, mattresses and large toys. Mattresses and upholstered items must be wrapped and sealed in a plastic containment bag, available for purchase at the Harrison Township Government Center for $7.00 each. Residents are asked to contact Rumpke 24-hours in advance of setting a bulk item out for pick up.
