Trash collection changes are coming in 2015 for Mifflin Township residents.
In an effort to improve service and contain costs, Mifflin Township has approved a recently-bid contract with Rumpke, beginning in January in conjunction with the solid-waste consortium, to which it belongs. The three-year contract impacts all members of the consortium including nine other member communities: Gahanna, Bexley, New Albany, Reynoldsburg, Dublin, Westerville, Plain Township, Washington Township and Blendon Township.
Mifflin Township residents should have received a flyer from Rumpke with information on selecting a trash cart appropriately-sized for their family. All residents will be required to use Rumpke carts for trash and recycling service.
Each resident will receive (1) 95-gal. brown cart for trash and (1) green cart for recycling unless you chose to receive a smaller cart and respond to Rumpke by Friday, Nov. 14, 2014.
Option 1: Monthly trash service including 95-gal. trash cart + recycling cart = $15.79/month
Option 2: Monthly trash service including 65-gal. trash cart + recycling cart = $14.80/month
Option 3: Monthly trash service including 35-gal. trash cart + recycling cart = $14.25/month
Please mark your calendars with the following key dates:
- New Carts will be delivered to residents in mid-December 2014
- The first day of service with new carts will be Saturday, January 3, 2015
- Every-other-week recycling collection begins Saturday, January 3, 2015
- All existing Rumpke carts and bins will be removed from your residence
Trash collection on regular service days will be:
Yard Waste: Monday
Recycling: Friday (every other week starting with the first collection in 2015.)
