From Rumpke’s Community Newsletter
For nearly 90 years, our family business has been protecting the health and safety of the communities that we service by providing essential services of waste and recycling collection. Now more than ever, our team is needed to help combat the spread of illness. We are taking additional steps to ensure the safety of our team members as well as our customers. There are steps your community can also take to prevent the spread of disease.
What Residents Can Do:
- Bag all of your trash. This reduces employee exposure to items like used tissues and other personal hygiene products.
- Place trash at the curb the night before scheduled service.
- Continue to place recycling in your bin loose. Ensure only the correct items are placed in recycling containers. Remember items like trash bags and grocery bags, tissues, napkins and paper cups aren’t accepted.
- Properly dispose of medical sharps. Medical sharps used to administer medication to individuals or pets should be placed in a rigid plastic container, clearly marked “Sharps”, sealed shut and placed in trash.
