Sycamore Township Residents Recycled 912 Tons in 2013!

Waste and recycling collection for all residences is provided by private waste collection companies.  Rumpke or CSI will provide each single-family residence with a Rumpke or CSI owned 96-gallon waste wheeler receptacle (CSI uses with an automated truck) and recycling bin, both for a small charge to the resident. Both items should remain at the residence as they are the property of Rumpke and CSI.

Recycling Drop-Off Locations (open to the public) - provided free to Sycamore Township residents -  serve the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Containers are for newspaper and magazines, glass, plastic, and food and beverage cans; Rumpke sorts the recycling material. Any questions, please call (513) 791-8447. Drop-off recycling locations include:

8540 Kenwood Road (behind the Township Administration building)

and 11745 Solzman Road (next to McDaniel Park)

Recycling Guidelines

*Please rinse all bottles and jars, and remove the lids. There is no need to remove labels, since they disintegrate in the recycling process.

*Flatten all cans and plastic bottles to conserve space. Please break down cardboard to 3'x3' sections, and flatten all boxes.

*Place all recyclables together in your bin. Thanks to Rumpke's single stream processing method, all recyclables are mechanically sorted at the processing facility.

*We strive to accept as many items as possible.  We can not collect certain items because of contamination issues.
