Trash Collection Changes in Store for Mifflin Township Residents

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
Trash: Friday
Recycling: Friday (every other week starting with the first collection in 2015.)
