Garbage & Recycling


  • Avoid parking on the street on your collection day. Parked cars often block access and result in missed collection.
  • Place trash curbside the night before your collection day.  Rumpke collection times can vary.
  • Rumpke will collect one bulky item per week, such as a mattress, couch or appliance. (See Bulk Trash Collection) 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, lead paint, chemicals, 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 or biodegradable paper bags. Only shrubbery, grass, weeds, leaves and sticks are accepted in the City’s yard waste program.
