Trash & Recycling Collection

The Village of Elmwood Place contracts with Rumpke for trash collection in the Village. Rumpke collects on Friday mornings. No garbage shall be set out to the curb earlier than 4:00 p.m. the evening before pickup, and all trash receptacles shall be removed from the curb no later than 8:00 p.m. the day of pickup.

Village residents are required to obtain a Rumpke vendor approved trash cart. A vendor approved cart must be mounted on wheels, have an attached lid, and a lift-bar. Residents may purchase a trash cart or have the option to rent a Rumpke trash cart through the Village. Residents can rent a trash cart for $1.50 per month per cart.

To add a trash cart to your service, contact the Village offices at (513) 482-3773.

Rumpke is not responsible for damaged carts or missing carts. If your trash cart is lost/stolen and you rent it through the Village, please click here to download a “Stolen Cart Form”. Once you have completed the form, please fax it back to (513) 242-4578.

Collection service is provided on all holidays except Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. Visit for more details.

Rumpke provides large item collection as part of their service to the Village. Please contact Rumpke 24 hours before your regular scheduled collection to request a bulk pick-up for acceptable large items. Upholstered items such as mattresses and furniture must be wrapped in plastic in order to ensure collection.
