Rumpke takes over trash collection Jan. 1
Starting Jan. 1, trash collection services in Miami Township will be handled by Rumpke Waste and Recycling Services.
The new three-year deal requires the township to move trash pickup to a five-day service plan instead of the current single-day pickup. Some residents will see their pickup day change from the current Wednesday schedule, but their new pickup day will remain consistent. Recycling services will remain on a bi-weekly schedule. Rumpke will supply new 95-gallon recycling cart to all residents. Residents will also have the ability to rent a 95-gallon trash cart for $1.50 per month. Rumpke will supply each resident with a detailed mailer outlining their collection day and a recycling calendar.
Residents will receive any critical updates through the township website, township social media, by Rumpke, and other avenues as necessary, while the transfer of services proceeds. Residents are encouraged to visit www.miamitownship.com regularly as well as follow updates on Facebook/miamitownship and Twitter @miamitownship for updates and information concerning any public meetings that might be scheduled.
Miami Township offers 2018 dog tags
Dog tags will be available for purchase at the Miami Township Government Center, 2700 Lyons Road, from Dec 1-Jan. 31.
The state of Ohio requires every dog older than three months to have a license.
Fees this year remain the same: $20 per license ($24 for unaltered dogs). This enables the dog owner to avoid a potential $150 ticket for failure to license their pet. There is a $20 late fee penalty for owners who fail to license their dog before the Jan. 31 deadline. Multi-year licenses are only available at the Montgomery County Auditor’s Office.
The Miami Township Government Center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. The license fee is payable to Miami Township by cash or check. No credit or debit cards are accepted.
All license fees generated go to support the work of the Animal Resource Center for the rescue, care, and housing of our community’s lost and homeless pets
