We sat down at the end of the year and took a moment to reflect back on the year behind us. Phew - turns out we were busy! See our top 14 countdown for '14 below...

Please disregard the mailer that came from Rumpke today. The mailer was intended for Orange Township residents and the information is not applicable to Bexley households. There will be no changes to pickup days or service for Bexley residents in the new year. Speaking of which - Happy New Year!
The City of Bexley will not be moving to a semi-automated trash pickup system as previously advertised. On December 9, 2014, Bexley City Council approved new trash and recycling rates for 2015-17 starting on January 1, 2015. City Council and staff also determined that it would be in the city’s best interest to accept Rumpke Waste and Recycling’s three year “status quo” option given new information regarding the semi-automated option that was brought to light during contract negations. Specifically, while the City was told that additional cans would be able to be purchased by residents for a one time fee, it had not been specified that this was to be in addition to a recurring monthly fee in the range of $5.00 to $7.00. This recurring fee would negate any cost savings and would cost considerably more for residents requiring more than one can for trash or recycling. Due to this change, the City felt that it would be in the best interests of residents to retain our current level of service with Rumpke, with no change to the plan options.
