Five counties in Northeast Ohio will be without trash collection for the foreseeable future as several collection trucks are facing significant issues.

This week Rumpke Waste & Recycling, the trash collector for the area, noted that trash pickup may be delayed due to its trucks being out of commission stemming from a “supplier error” that caused “significant fuel contamination.”

This delay is affecting those counties in the Greater Cleveland and Akron areas including Cuyahoga, Geauga, Medina, Portage, and Summit.

"We apologize for this situation," Rumpke wrote in its statement. "Please know that our team will not stop working until this issue is resolved. We greatly appreciate your assistance, patience, and business as we overcome this challenge and work to ultimately deliver the service our customers expect and deserve."

Rumpke did not provide an exact timeline as to when the trucks would be up and running for service again. The company notes that it is working “around the clock” to get those vehicles back on the roads. Currently, residents are being asked to still place their trash and recycle out on the curb, where it will be picked up eventually.
