Bulky materials including:

  • Drywall

According to federal law, Rumpke is also not permitted to accept batteries, tires, liquids, combustible materials or any items identified as household hazardous waste.

Keep in mind that yard and household containers are not acceptable trash containers and will be assumed trash if placed at the curb.

Our teams try to accommodate oversized items within the same week they are notified. Contact Rumpke to request this service and schedule a pickup at least 48 hours before your regularly scheduled collection to request large item pickup for acceptable large items, and/or excessive amounts of trash. Any mattress or upholstered furniture must be completely wrapped and sealed in disposable plastic for removal.

For even larger bulk trash pickups, scheduling an appointment with our junk hauling service, Haul-it-Away, for an additional fee may be necessary.

Artificial trees cannot be recycled or composted.

For real and artificial trees, please remove all tinsel, ribbons, lights, and other decorations.

For trees longer than 6 feet, please cut it into smaller pieces, bundle it, and place it curbside the night before your regular collection day.*

In some areas, composting options are available for retired, live Christmas trees. You can find the most accurate information for your community by checking with your county’s solid waste management district. Many districts offer free yard waste and tree drop-off stations. You can also check with your local municipal offices.

*Please remember to check with your municipality for clarification about local rules and regulations for tree collection.
