Service E - Annual Curbaise Spring Clean-Up
Each Spring, residents may set out an unspecified number of items for collection during a given week. All items must be bagged, containerized, and/or securely tied in 4x4 bundles. No loose garbage will be picked up. The village will post specifications for the event in advance. 

Optional Spring Clean Up
Rumpke proposes the Roll-Off Container pricing grid below for the village to consider. This containerized approach could be used as a replacement for or in addition to the annual Spring clean-up program. Rumpke would coordinate with Village staff on the logistics of the Roll Off Drop Off program. In this scenario, residents or village staff would be responsible for delivering refuse to the designated container site and loading the material into containers.

September 1, 2021 to August 31, 2022 $201.00 $55.50 $129.00
