Curbside Recycling

Rumpke operates a curbside recycling program under contract with the City of Oxford. Help the City reduce the stream of waste going to landfills.

Recycling Containers

Place your recyclables in the red, 14-gallon container that Rumpke supplies to residential customers for your use. If you do not have a red bin and you have residential service, call the Utility Department at (513) 524-5221 and the City will deliver a red bin to you.

Important: Recycling containers belong to Rumpke Recycling and should be left at the residence when a customer moves out.


Place the recycling container by your garbage cans on your scheduled pickup day.
