Trash & Recycling

Rumpke is working with the Town of Edinburgh to improve trash and recycling service. Rumpke will service the Edinburgh community with new trucks that use an automated arm to collect garbage at the curb.

While the use of this truck will allow for a cleaner and more efficient service, the primary benefit is a safer environment for our employees. By keeping our drivers inside the truck, we avoid injuries associated with heavy lifting and more importantly, passing motorists. You can help us by following the few simple steps outlined below.

  • Face the waste wheeler toward the street (wheels away from street).
  • Position the waste wheeler within two feet of the curb.
  • Avoid placing the waste wheeler near parked cars, mailboxes or other objects.
  • If you have more trash than the waste wheeler can hold, please make sure it is bagged and placed on top.

Please begin following these guidelines on your next collection day. Thank you for your cooperation as we roll out this new service. If you have any questions, please contact Rumpke Customer Service at (800) 678-6753 or
