Trash and Recycling Services
Trustees of Springfield Township were interested in finding out if residents could save money on their waste hauler/ recycling bills by aggregating this service through a single contractor. After a thorough review process. the Township entered into its first contract for trash and recycling in 2016. Within five years, residents saved an average of $372 with the single hauler agreement. The agreement was set to expire in 2021 and trustees again collected bids for the same service for a second five-year term. Rumpke was the only waste hauler that submitted a bid due to the size of the community and number of households being too many for most other providers. The following represents the proposed pricing beginning May 1, 2021:
Waste Collection & Recycling Services Monthly Pricing
5 Year Fixed Pricing, Unlimited Trash and Recycling Option
5 Year Fixed Pricing, Limited Trash and Recycling Option (includes 96 gallon trash can)
*Optional Add-on rental of 96 gallon trash can remains $2.50/month if selected and fee of $0.10/month ($1.20/annually) per account will be applied for customer service support.The above pricing for the new agreement will save residents, on average, almost $283 over the next 5 years when compared to the current non-contract subscription rate. Additionally, in year five of the new agreement (2026) the price will still be $4/month less than residents were paying in 2016. While an aggregated plan prevents households from selecting their own waste hauler, benefits include a reduced cost in monthly waste bills, an anticipated 20% increase in the Township’s recycling rate and greater restrictions over surcharges and fees charged by haulers. Under the new program, Rumpke provides a 65-gallon wheeled recycle cart to all Springfield Township residents at no cost.
