The Miami Township Board of Trustees approved a new trash and recycling contract with Rumpke Waste and Recycling at its October 6 meeting. The new 3.5-year deal will take effect January 1, 2021, and run through June 30, 2024.
A slight increase in cost to customers allows for more service options. Here are the highlights:
The current contract ends December 31, 2020, at the rate of $12.75 a month. Trustees agree that the slight increase will benefit residents as will the weekly recycling plan.
“The new service contract to weekly recycling and the options for carts is well worth it and solves a lot of problems for all of our residents. The other part of this is we could get different bids that could be considerably higher than with this 3-year guarantee, so I went back and forth, but I think this is the right decision,” Trustee President John Morris said.
“We’re now three years in (to current contract) and I still see recycling bins out on the wrong week, just because it’s very challenging to keep track. And I do think recycling is very important. I think locking in the price for three years is good stewardship,” Trustee Terry Posey, Jr. said.
The township does not receive financial benefit from this contract. All costs and fees associated with this agreement are made between the residents and the trash hauler without the township’s involvement in collection.
