Columbus New Yard Waste Pickup Program

by Maureen McCabe on April 7, 2009

Today’s Columbus Dispatch has “A primer on city’s new yard-waste pickup program” written by Robert Vitale.

“Q: How much does it cost?

A: $49.50 for six months of weekly pickup. Rumpke will bill only twice a year, though, so you’ll pay that same amount whether you sign up in the first week or the last week of a six-month cycle. The second cycle will start Oct. 20. ”

You can take your trash to a number of locations rather than pay for pick up including:

Kurtz Bros. and Mulch Manufacturing Inc. at  6055-C Westerville Road, Westerville   (614 882-0200)

Kurtz Bros. and Mulch Manufacturing Inc. at 6279 Houchard Road, Dublin (614 873-2000)

The Ohio Mulch company at 4665 Westerville Rd.  (614 891-3242)

Those sites and more are from the Yard Waste page on the Columbus Division of Refuse Website

Call ahead for hours.

Be sure they accept grass clippings if that is what you are trying to dispose of.

Bring your drivers license showing you live in the city.

They may check your vehicles license plates so you may reconsider a  run up to Lewis Center to borrow Uncle Joe’s pick up with the Delaware County license plates to transport your yard waste to a site.   Back seat of your car?  The trunk?

Contact Rumpke about yard waste pickup:

the city has come up with a horrid solution. Why not just be able to pay for and print tags for yard refuse bags off the website? These tags could be attached to yard bags for collection once a month on a designated day.

$100 annually is not reflective of the level of reuse made by the average citizen…

More yard waste is bound to end up in landfills thanks to poor city planning that does not address the real needs of Columbus citizens.

Thanks for the comment. $100 yearly could be you and your neighbors, I think it can be up to 15 bags a week.

I have a legit question, wanting to do thing correctly. Yes it would be easy to put in the trash. But, I do not use yard waste regularly…a spring clean up and fall. I do not bag clippings. So to me $50 is too much. Is it “legal” and ethical to combine with neighbors and split cost..having it picked up at one address? Split the cost keeping under the minimum 15 bags? Is that legit?
thanks

My understanding is neighbors can combine. All trash is picked up at one address.

I’m confused. After just getting off the phone with Rumpke and the City of Columbus, I have received the opposite information from both of them. According to both sources, the city is picking up the tab for yard waste pick-up and you don’t need to do anything to enroll. Can someone clarify this?

Perhaps a look at the date of the post will help with your confusion on April 14, 2010.

“Maureen McCabe on April 7, 2009″ about a year ago

There is a new post today (in 2010) saying that PU start again April 19, 2010 and you don’t need to pay additional.

8 Nick April 14, 2010 at 01:05 pm

Haha. That does unconfuse me. I read the first post in my google reader and followed the link thinking it was a current story. That’s what I get for scanning my reader too quickly.
Sorry about that.

that is OK…
