Thanks Nascar & Click. I didn't get a postcard. I'll look on the website, but if I didn't get notice then I imagine there are others who didn't. Also, if you got notice just recently then why should anyone be surprised that people didn't know about and take advantage of the opportunity over the summer.

Is it true that someone sat the city clowncil at the curb, and the stench was so bad, Rumpke refused to haul it away?

Tessie.....Within the last two weeks I received a 11x6 postcard from Rumpke. It states Rumpkes holiday schedule, service, recycling & waste guidelines. Also it explains your one free bulky item per quarter. Every resident that pays for trash collection should've rec this card. Is it possible you just toss yours and didn't feel the need to read it? Mine is on our frig just as a reminder of what can be recycled. There's quite a list of items unacceptable for recycling. I must admit, I was guilty of ignorance on a few of the unacceptable items.

Shouldn't notice of the changes have been included with the billing statement? If it was I never saw one. Isn't the city responsible for letting residents know of these changes? I don't remember seeing anything about what was included in the new contract. The approval to stick with Rumpke did not require approval of council according to a March article in the Times so don't blame council for not getting the word out to the public. That's the responsibility of the Safety Service Director.
