The City of Richmond has selected Rumpke Waste & Recycling as its new waste services provider. According to city leaders, transition to the new services will take place in two phases beginning next month. Rumpke will start providing all Richmond businesses with waste collection service on March 1, while residential service will begin January 1, 2024.

Richmond City Manager Rob Minerich said it was important for locals to note the dates associated with the two-phased approach. “The first phase will only be for the commercial, or business, sector of the community. The residential segment will not begin until 2024. (Residents) make their transition to the new service provider,” said Minerich.

The city manager said Rumpke will begin delivering commercial containers to local businesses in early February and continue deliveries throughout the month. Businesses can expect to receive a mailer from Rumpke with details about service guidelines and billing procedures in the coming weeks. “Our family-owned company appreciates the opportunity to provide Richmond with friendly, reliable service,” Adam Rumpke, region vice president, said. “Our team has been working closely with city officials and meeting with businesses to ensure a smooth transition. Rumpke has proudly provided service in Madison County for years, and we are excited to now lend our expertise to Richmond.”
