  3. Garbage may be set out no earlier than 6 pm on the Monday evening prior to collection day. (Ordinance 521.10 – Waste Collection Rules)

  6. Some exceptions to the pick-up day may occur when holidays fall on Monday or Tuesday. Check the Rumpke website for any schedule changes.


  1. All trash to be picked up must fit into the Rumpke supplied waste container allowing for automated collection, which reduces the cost to each property owner.
  2. Trash containers supplied by Rumpke are registered to each specific property address.  Serial numbers are tracked and must stay with the property. Do not trade, sell or otherwise remove the container from the property to which it is assigned.
  3. Each Golf Manor residence is allowed the following configuration of containers under our current contract:
    • Single-family property: up to two (2) wheeled, brown regular waste bins and (1) wheeled 65-gallon or (1) wheeled 35-gallon green recycling bin.
    • 2-family apartment: up to two (2) wheeled, brown regular waste bins and two (2) wheeled 65-gallon or (1) wheeled 35-gallon green recycling bin.
    • 4-family apartment: up to four (4) wheeled, brown regular waste bins and (4) wheeled 65-gallon green recycling bins.
    • Each property owner chooses configuration and sizes needed.
    • Additional carts above the guidelines described are at owner’s additional expense. Call Rumpke directly to make that arrangement.
  4. Trash will not be collected if placed in personal containers including plastic bags, or if left at the curb in no container.
  5. Yard waste set out for Rumpke collection must fit in the brown bin or be placed in paper yard bags; plastic is not permitted. Bagged leaves prepared for Rumpke must be collected in paper yard bags.
  6. One large item per week is permitted, e.g., furniture, rugs, mattresses, old garbage cans, appliances. Call Rumpke in advance to notify them of this need. Upholstered or fabric items must be completely wrapped in cellophane.
  7. Freon must be removed from air conditioners and refrigerators by a certified technician to qualify for pick up (certificate must be affixed to the unit).
  8. TVs and computer screens are not collected (recycle these items at authorized collection outlets).
  9. Tires are prohibited per Ohio law (recycle at a tire dealer).
  10. “Move out” garbage when vacating a property must adhere to the above guidelines. If move out waste will not fit into the regular bins, a special pick-up will need to be scheduled with Rumpke at the owner’s additional expense. The property owner is responsible for ensuring garbage is not left at the curb. Failure to follow this procedure may result in the property owner receiving a citation and fine.


Golf Manor partners with Rumpke to provide residents with curbside recycling service. Recycling is collected every other week on Tuesday.

See the 2021 Rumpke recycling collection calendar here.

All recyclables must be placed at the curb completely enclosed in the green Rumpke-issued container. If you don’t currently have a recycling container at your property, call Rumpke at 800–582–3107 to request one. There is no additional cost to participate in the recycling program.
