IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING TOWNSHIP TRASH and RECYCLING SERVICES
Rumpke Waste & Recycling Services is the single

hauler for trash and recycling services in Berkshire

Township. As a reminder to residents who may

not be familiar with the decision, the choice to contract with one hauler was made for several reasons, but the two main ones were:1) Economics (it saved the majority of residents quite a bit on their monthly bill, (plus added recycling) and 2) Safety/Maintenance (it greatly reduced the number of heavy trucks on our roads daily, making it safer for our children and reducing wear and tear on our roads.


As of 2/11/19 We are aware that MANY residents have not had their final trash collection from Republic and still have trash, recycling and the blue Republic containers at their curbs. We have been informed by Republic that they are trying to complete pick up of trash, recycling and containers but they have not committed to a firm date for completion. The trustees understand completely how frustrating this is. PLEASE DO NOT CONTINUE TO PUT TRASH OR RECYCLING IN YOUR REPUBLIC CONTAINERS. Use your new Rumpke containers. You may contact Jason at Republic directly at 614-272-3728. Vic Citro no longer serves this area.


Rumpke service has  begun and as a reminder, they are not permitted to pick up from any other company's containers.


PLEASE CALL RUMPKE at 1-800-828-8171 if you have not already done so to verify your account and be sure to tell them you are a Berkshire Township resident to receive the special contract rate. Their email contact is below:



As we currently have, recycling will be picked up every other week. THE MAILER YOU RECEIVED FROM RUMPKE WILL HAVE YOUR RECYCLING CALENDAR ON IT. PLEASE SAVE IT.

 We encourage all Berkshire Township residents to sign up to receive the Township email newsletter. A link is provided at the bottom of the HOME page on this website.

We try to update township road projects on this website whenever possible.
