City-Wide Clean-Up This Saturday

In an effort to assist residents with their spring cleaning, the City of Hamilton, in conjunction with Rumpke, will host a city-wide, curbside cleanup on the east side of the river in Hamilton this Saturday, April 25.  A similar cleanup was held on Saturday, April 18 on the west side of the river.

During the scheduled cleanup, residents will be permitted to place multiple items and/or large items at their regular trash collection location (curb or alley) for collection and disposal.  Residents should properly prepare/bundle items for collection if necessary, and place materials at the curb the night before the scheduled cleanup (Friday, April 24).  Rumpke will begin collecting items at 5:00 a.m., so make sure to place your items out the night before to ensure they are collected.

Rumpke asks that upholstered furniture, mattresses and box springs be wrapped and sealed in plastic and appliances containing chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) such as refrigerators and freezers be properly tagged indicating the CFCs (Freon) have been removed by a certified technician.

The following items will not be accepted during the cleanups:

  • Overloaded and/or wet boxes.
  • Barrels or drums
  • Waste oil
  • Construction and/or remodeling materials
  • Electronic appliances
  • Items containing chlorofluorocarbons (any item with a coolant in it, microwaves, etc.)
  • Tires
  • Batteries
  • Paint
  • Hazardous materials
  • Yard Waste
  • Weekly household garbage

Clearing out debris and clutter and placing in a can or cart at the curb is permissible, but if you can wait for your regular garbage collection day, please do so.

For more information on how to dispose of the items listed above, please visit Butler County’s Recycling and Solid Waste District’s website.

Additionally, the City will attempt to assist elderly and/or disabled residents with getting their items for the cleanup to the curb.  If you require assistance with getting your items to the curb or if you are interested in volunteering to provide assistance to our elderly and/or disabled residents, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Karen Wittmer via phone at 513-844-8050 or via email at wittmerk@hamilton-oh.gov.

The City cannot guarantee assistance to every resident who makes a request.  If you have an elderly or disabled neighbor or know of anyone who may require assistance, we encourage you to reach out to them and ask if you can assist them in any way.

For residents who will receive assistance, please note volunteers are not permitted to enter private residences.  Any residents receiving assistance from volunteers must move their items for disposal to the garage or an area outside the residence.
For more information on the city-wide cleanup, please contact the Department of Public Works at 513-785-7270.

HEY! Hamilton! welcomes polite discourse, but all comments are moderated and will not appear with the post until they have been approved by the editor, which could be soon, could be tomorrow. Could be never if you're being a troll. Thank you.
