Residents may rent an XL trash cart on wheels from Rumpke for $3 per month, billed annually for $36 per year.
Yard Waste Guidelines and FAQ:
- What is considered yard waste?
Yard waste typically consists of organic waste generated during regular household gardening and landscaping activities, such as grass clippings, leaves, twigs, branches, shrubbery and other garden residues.
- How should yard waste be prepared?
Loose Material: Place it in biodegradable (paper) bags or rigid containers. Contact the Hilliard Service Department or Rumpke for stickers to attach to containers designated for yard waste. Bags are generally available for purchase at home improvement or grocery retail stores. Please do not line the paper bags with plastic bags.
Branches: Cut branches to less than 4 feet in length. Tie the branches into bundles with string or twine. The diameter of each bundle should not exceed 2 feet.
Weight Restrictions: Each container, bag or bundle must weigh less than 50 pounds. Containers meeting this requirement will likely have a 30-35 gallon capacity.
Unacceptable Items: Examples include rocks, dirt and plastic bags. Please contact Rumpke at 1-800-828-8171 if you are uncertain about a type of material.
Bulky Items Pick-up:
Rumpke will collect bulky household items, such as appliances, carpet, furniture, child play equipment and mattresses, from the curb on your regular trash service day. Please contact Rumpke 24-hours in advance to schedule a bulk item pick-up.
- Appliances with Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC): For appliances such as refrigerators or personal air conditioner units, please have the CFC removed by a licensed technician prior to collection and attach the certification of removal to the appliance. Please contact Rumpke if you have questions about CFC removal.
- Home Remodeling Projects: Rumpke will collect trash resulting from minor home remodeling projects. Please prepare the debris like any other trash, not to exceed 50 pounds per container. Please follow the bulk item guides for large material. Contact Rumpke to make arrangements for removal of debris from larger projects, for which the resident will be charged.
