Council to enter into Contract with Rumpke for Trash & Recycling Service in the Village.
Shawnee Hills Village Council will be signing a contract with Rumpke of Ohio, Inc. to be the sole provider for residential trash and recycling services in the Village. The first service day under the contract will be Thursday, February 2, 2017. This action was taken at the December 12, 2016 regular Council meeting. Currently, village residents choose their own trash company. Although the majority of residents currently utilize Rumpke for their pick-up service the contract will assure Village residents a monthly rate of $16.94 for pick-up services, which is lower than what they currently pay. Service will include solid waste, recycling and bulk item collection without any additional surcharges. There will still be no separate collection for yard waste, so residents should continue with their current practice. Each residence will also receive a 95 gallon roll-out cart for trash and a 65 gallon roll-out cart for recycling at no additional cost. These carts must be used due to the use of an automated armed truck for pick-up of solid waste and recycling. The contract will be for (3) three years with an option for mutual extensions. Pick-up of all materials will be on Thursday.
Residents will receive notification by mail from both the Village and Rumpke in the next 30 (thirty) days with details of the service including guidelines for recycling. Current Rumpke customers need to pay their current bill upon receipt and any adjustments due to the lower rates effective February 1st will be credited by Rumpke. Residents not currently using Rumpke need to notify their current trash hauler to cancel their service. Registration instructions for new Rumpke customers will be provided in a mailer.
The Fall Village newsletter indicated that the Village was considering piggy-backing onto Concord Township’s trash contract with Republic Waste Hauling for trash services which would offer residents lower cost on trash bills. However, as the current trash provider for the majority of residents in the Village, the Village has chosen to contract with Rumpke for a comparable rate and terms for three years rather than two years. In addition, the majority of residents would not experience any service interruptions, have to cancel their old service and re-subscribe for new service and all residents will be able to take advantage of the lower rates sooner. Therefore, Council unanimously selected to pursue a contract that would make Rumpke the sole trash and recycling service provider for residents in the Village. Again, there will be no change in current services or pricing until February and informational mailings will be sent to all residents in January. In the meantime, please contact Village Hall at 614-889-2824 if you have any questions or concerns.
