Waste Collection & Recycling


The City of Trotwood contracts with Rumpke for trash collection and recycling for all residents and businesses in the community.  To establish a billing account, please call the City’s Utility Billing office at 937/854-7210.  If you have specific questions about the types of items that can be recycled, items for bulk trash pickup, or how holidays affect your trash pickup schedule, call Rumpke directly at 937/461-0004.

Recycling is provided on a weekly basis at no additional charge on the same day your trash is collected.  A free recycling tote is provided to each residence upon request.  Additional resources are available to residents who wish to recycle.  This information is provided below.
