The trash pickup schedule for Rumpke Waste & Recycling varies by location but generally occurs during normal business hours Monday through Friday. As of 2015, the city of Bellbrook, Ohio, contracts with the company for garbage collection on Friday, while Westerville, Ohio has a Tuesday pickup day.
For Rumpke clients, deviation from a municipality's regular trash collection schedule occurs when the day falls on a notable holiday, such as Christmas or New Year's Day. Some municipalities also delay garbage pickup days for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, President's Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day or Columbus Day. The company maintains a complete listing of holiday service delays on the Holiday Schedules page of the main company website.
Rumpke Waste & Recycling was founded in 1932 by William F. Rumpke, who operated a coal-delivery service and junkyard. His son, the president emeritus of the company as of 2015, assumed control of the family business in the 1960s, focusing on growing the trash disposal services of the company. During the 1980s, the corporation acquired over 200 other companies to consolidate landfill sites and expand its service area.
The company is headquartered in Colerain Township, outside the Cincinnati, Ohio metro area. It provides disposal services for areas of West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, typically contracting with specific municipalities.
