Trash, Recycling & Yard Waste Collection
Thursday is the normal collection day for trash, yard waste and recyclables in the New Albany. However, collection days may vary from time to time due to holidays, weather conditions and other factors. Collection is provided by Rumpke, which bills residents directly. Please make sure to have your trash, recycling and yard waste to the curb by 7 AM on collection day. For more information, please click here or call Rumpke at 800-828-8171.
The quantity of trash is not limited per household. Individual containers should not exceed a 33-gallon capacity or weigh more than 50 pounds. Bulk materials such as boards, fencing, paneling or carpeting should be cut into four-foot by four-foot lengths and tied in 18-inch bundles weighing no more than 50 pounds. Loose materials such as rocks, sod, bricks, blocks, dirt, sand and cement must be bagged, boxed or placed in trash cans, and weigh no more than 50 pounds. Cardboard boxes used as receptacles will not be collected if they have become wet. Furniture or appliances that are in one piece will be picked up on regular collection days.
Trash of a commercial nature (generated by businesses, contractors hired to perform services for homeowners, etc.) will not be collected.
Rumpke has expanded the list of acceptable materials. It is no longer necessary to separate different types of recyclables. Now all of the following items can be placed in your bin:
- Plastics 1-7 (please note number in triangle at bottom of product)
- Aluminum, steel and bi-metal food and beverage cans
- Mixed paper, including paperboard, cardboard, junk mail, phone books, office paper, catalogs and magazines
- Colored and clear glass containers
Yard Waste Collection
Rumpke collects yard waste on the same service day as refuse and recycling. Yard waste should be put in paper yard waste bags or a trash can marked for yard waste only. Branches or twigs that are cut down to four feet in length and no larger than two inches in diameter must be tied and bundled for collection.
A certified technician must remove CFC (chlorofluorocarbons) from Freon-containing appliances, including refrigerators, freezers and air conditioners. In preparation for collection, the appliances must have a certificate of removal on it. Rumpke can also remove the CFC for a fee of $50. Please call Rumpke to make the necessary arrangements for CFC removal at 800.828.8171 prior to pick.
