Delaware County, Ohio’s three largest townships, Genoa, Liberty and Orange, have renewed their contracts with Rumpke for trash and recycling collection, but have decided to dismiss the company’s yard waste collection service offering because it would have cost residents an additional $5 per month.
The waste and recycling collection services will cost residents $15.39 per month, which is about $2 per month higher than a similar contract the counties have had for the past three years.
The Columbus Dispatch has more information:
Delaware County’s three largest townships have renewed an agreement to consolidate trash and recycling pickup. But it won’t include grass clippings, twigs or leaves.
Genoa, Liberty and Orange townships each are seeing a surge of new homes along their southern border with Franklin County. And all of their refuse adds substantially to the growing waste stream.
Monday night, trustees in Liberty and Orange voted to accept Rumpke Waste and Recycling’s bid, which will cost residents $15.39 per month for curbside trash and recycling. That’s about $2 per month higher than a similar contract they’ve had for the past three years. And yard waste is not included. The inclusion of yard waste pickup would have added more than five dollars more per month to that bill.
