The City of Vandalia contracts for removal and disposal of household trash, recycling, yard waste and bulk items with the current contract being held by Rumpke of Ohio. Every owner or occupant of any building must keep garbage in approved weatherproof/pestproof containers with tight fitting lids or in sealed bags. Trash must be placed at the curb for pickup before 6 a.m. on the scheduled collection day but no earlier than 12:00 noon on the day preceding the pickup and all containers must be moved from the curb by 6:00 p.m. of the day following the scheduled pickup day. When not at the curb for pickup, all trash and garbage receptacles shall either be in an enclosed building or placed behind the front building line. If your trash items are not collected, please contact Rumpke at 461-0004. Trash Collection Holidays
Yard Waste (i.e. - grass, flowers, tree trimmings, etc.) will be picked up the same day as the trash and must be in approved yard waste bags which can be purchased at Ken’s Pharmacy. The Yard Waste truck does not operate during the months of November through February. Rumpke will pick up leaves through the months of November through March. Please put the leaves in plastic bags (you do not have to use yard waste bags) and place them out at the curb to be collected on your regular trash pickup day. Please...no more than 2 bags per week.
Large Item Pickup: As a new convenience for Vandalians, Rumpke will provide weekly curbside removal of bulk items and small construction debris for no fee if residents call Rumpke at 461-0004 at least 72 hours in advance. In addition to curbside removal, the city will continue to hold a bulk trash drop-off at the Vandalia's City Garage, 97 Clubhouse Way, on the second Saturday on designated months as shown on the city calendar. However, waste will be strictly limited to brush, limbs and large construction debris.Alternatively, you may dispose of almost any disposables directly at the Montgomery County North Incinerator at any time during the month. They are located at 6589 Webster Street, and may be contacted at 898-5459 for hours of operation and disposal fee info.
If any of these holidays fall on your pickup day, Rumpke will pick up your trash on the day immediately following. Trash collection schedule for the remainder of the week will be delayed one day.
