The Village of Terrace Park has a contract with Rumpke for pick up of garbage and recycling.
Residents do not need to call Rumpke to establish a new service.
  • As a village service, all residences receive either a large green wheeler or smaller red bin for RECYCLING. A homeowner must then leave the recycling container when moving from the residence. If you are a new resident and your purchased home did not come with a RECYCLING container, please contact the previous owner and try to retrieve the container. If you are unable to reach the previous owner, please contact the village office at 513-831-2138. All damaged RECYCLING containers can be replaced by Rumpke. Please call the Village office for a replacement.  RECYCLING is picked up on Tuesdays.  Place RECYCLING Bins out by 6 a.m. Tuesday, but not before 4 p.m. on Monday.

  • Homeowners provide their own TRASH containers which can be rented from Rumpke or purchased at a hardware store. Rumpke trash collection is paid for by the village and collected every Tuesday. Place cans or bags out by 6 a.m. Tuesday, but not before 4 p.m. on Monday.

  • Yard waste is not collected by Rumpke.  Please leave at the curb and Terrace Park Maintenance will pick up.  Trimmings and waste too small to be pick up with a pitchfork (including leaves out of season) should be placed in brown paper lawn waste bags and left at the curb.

  • Have large items or extra garbage? Call Rumpke let them know 800-828-8171
