Miami Twp. to change waste haulers for next 3 years

Miami Twp. has opted to change the company it contracts with for waste collection.

Township trustees voted Tuesday night to award a three-year contract to Rumpke of Ohio, Inc. That company submitted the “lowest and best” bid over Waste Management Inc., the township’s current provider whose contract expires Dec. 31.

Rumpke will provide the township’s estimated 7,500 homes with collection of trash, recycling and yard waste, records show.
