Curbside Trash

Please place your carts at the curb the night before your scheduled collection to ensure service. Face the cart opening toward the street, three feet from the road and three feet from other objects. This request comes from Rumpke and our Road Department.

Rumpke will collect bulky items on your regular service day. You may place bulky items out for collection on one day during each calendar month at no charge. There will be a charge for collection of bulky items on additional days in the same month. Any item placed outside the trash cart will be considered a bulky item. As a courtesy, please contact Rumpke in advance when you have bulky items for pickup. Examples: appliances, carpet and furniture. Their number is 800.828.8171.

Fabric and upholstered items must be wrapped in plastic. Examples: furniture, mattresses and box springs. 

Appliances with Freon must have the Freon removed by a licensed technician, and the removal certificate must be attached to the appliances. Examples: refrigerators, freezers and air conditioning units.

Prohibited items are tires, batteries, hazardous waste, liquids, flammable materials, household chemicals. DO NOT place the items inside the Rumpke trash or recycling carts. For safe disposal options, please contact Lorain County Solid Waste at 440.329.5440.

Place needles and other sharp objects in a hard plastic laundry detergent bottle, reattach the lid and secure it with duct tape. Use a thick permanent marker to write "SHARPS" on the bottle. Please it inside your trash cart sealed.

Mailbox Installation

See FAQ on this website about damage to your mailbox by a township vehicle.

Installation of decorated and plastic mailboxes within the public right of way is at the risk of the property owner. If the township snowplows damage a mailbox it will be repaired or replaced by the township with a standard rural type mailbox on a 4×4 wood post.

Please mark both sides of your mailbox with your address so the emergency services can find you if needed, remember in an emergency, every minute counts.


There is no parking permitted on the north and south sides of Mayfield Road.

Street Lights

If you notice a street light out, please note the address of the nearest house where the light pole is located; call the road department at 440.277.6409 and leave a detailed message with the location of the pole.

Brush Collection

Brush collection is the first Monday of each month, weather permitting. Get your brush out on Sunday night. If it doesn’t get picked up on Monday, it will get picked up on Tuesday. If the first Monday is a holiday, the brush pickup will be delayed a day.

Do not bag your brush. Place the cut ends of your branches toward the road. If you have a large quantity help us out and spread it out across your yard. When the piles get high it is hard to pull the branches out. Our chipper does not like prickers, flowers, weeds, corn stocks, any type of grapevine material, or firewood size logs. They plug up our filters and intake screens and get caught up in the feed reels. If you pay a contractor to trim or cut down your tree they are responsible for what they do; the Road Department will not pick it up. This was a motion passed by the Board of Trustees.

Dumpster Days

Dumpster Days are generally held twice per year; Spring and Fall. The hours are 7 am to 5 pm rain or shine at 5166 Clinton Avenue.

Prohibited items include hazardous materials, asbestos, medical waste, paint, oil, propane tanks, hot water tanks, furniture, mattresses, organic material, tires, or fuel tanks of any kind or size. No campers or RVs. Nothing that has/had a title. ID required. Dates will be posted on the website and Facebook.

Rumpke will take grass clippings as long as they're bagged and placed in your trash cart.
