While automated trash collection allows for a cleaner and more efficient Rumpke service, the primary benefit is a safer environment for Rumpke employees and reduced costs to the residents of Pierce Township. By keeping drivers inside the truck, injuries associated with heavy lifting and passing motorists are avoided.

You can help by following the few simple steps:

• Place all of your household’s trash inside the cart.

• Face the cart toward the street (wheels away from street).

• Position the cart within two feet of the curb.

• Avoid placing the cart near parked cars, mailboxes your recycling container or other objects.
