New Recycling Carts Are On Their Way



New recycling toters are rolling out to residents now.  See below for our recycling toter FAQ.
 
How much does the recycling toter cost?
We’ve received a grant from SWACO and the Recycling Partnership for the majority of the cost of the new toters with the remainder of the cost paid through the existing refuse rate, so there will be no additional charge for the new toters.
 
What should we do with our old red Rumpke bins?
If you wish to dispose of an existing red recycling bin, please place it by your collection spot on May 20th and they’ll be collected for re-use or recycling.  If you do not wish to dispose of your existing bins, they can be reused for storage or overflow recycling in the future.
 
Will collection of my recycling change with this new toter program?
Good news - there will be no change to pickup day or frequency.  Rumpke will continue to collect recycling weekly on Mondays.
 
Can I request a smaller or larger recycling container?
We ask all residents to use the cart for 30 days before deciding whether it is the correct size for you. 96 gallon toters are being deployed across Bexley, with the exception of residents who signed up for different sizes earlier this year.  The larger toter accommodates higher volumes of recyclables to encourage recycling. If after 30 days you’d still like a different size toter, please call (614) 559-4220.
 
When my recycling toter was delivered, the lid was bent. Is it broken?
No! Some lids will be bent but should flatten out and close properly over time.

If we’ve purchased a City of Bexley recycling toter in the past, do I get an additional one?
If you’ve already purchased a recycling toter, you are eligible for an additional toter upon request* by calling (614) 559-4220.

What if I have an extra toter and want to re-mark it for a different type of waste?
Existing toters, if clearly and fully re-marked accordingly, can be used for solid waste or yard waste.  

If you don't receive a toter in the next few days, one will be delivered to you soon. Please call our Service Department with any questions at (614) 559-4220.  As a reminder, City Hall opens at 8:00 am.


♻ Happy recycling! ♻

* Note: we readily admit that communication regarding situations where residents have pre-existing recycling toters has been inconsistent.  Our apologies for this; because we are working with grant funding we have had to adjust the way we are distributing to residents who already had purchased recycling toters.
