ECO-Tier Solid Waste/Recycling Collection Service


ECO-Tier stand for "Economy" and "Ecology"
Economy ..... It is less expensive than the "Full Service" solid waste/recycling collection program
Ecology ....... Less material being buried in landfills and more material being captured by recycling
The ECO-Tier Solid Waste/Recycling Collection Service is specifically designed for:
  • residents who consistently generate small amounts of solid waste
  • residents who actively recycle
Residents interested in registering for the program must first complete and submit a registration form.   Once received, the Environmental Awareness Program will contact you to make sure you fully understand the Program.  If the residents still wishes to participate, the Environmental Program Manager will contact Rumpke and the Cincinnati Waterworks to modify their accounts. 
Residents have a choice between using a 35-gallon or 65-gallon brown Rumpke trash container (at no charge).  Please remember, all trash must be put in the container you select.  If you place additional bags beside the Rumpke container for collection, you will need to put $1 stickers on them in order to be collected.
If a resident decides they would prefer the container that was not chosen, please call the Environmental Awareness Program and the Program Manger will order a switch.

If, after participating in the Program, residents decide the program is not appropriate for them and they want to return to the "full service" collection program, contact the Environmental Awareness Program and residents' accounts will be changed back.  However, once a resident has return to full service, they will not be allowed to go back to the ECO-Tier Program.  There is no switching "back-and-forth."
