EAST CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The City of East Cleveland recently selected Rumpke Waste & Recycling as the official waste removal and recycling hauler for residents.

Effective Wednesday, Rumpke will provide weekly collection of trash and recycling for the City's households. Rumpke will maintain the same pick-up schedule as the previous service provider, so residents will not experience a major change.

"Rumpke is excited to provide service for East Cleveland residents. We look forward to becoming a familiar face in the community," said Andrew Rumpke, vice president at Rumpke. "We appreciate the assistance offered by East Cleveland's council and city officials to help make this a smooth transition."

Residents will receive a brochure from Rumpke prior to service explaining the details of the new contract, including the specific details of the recycling program. Rumpke encourages residents to call 1-888-786-7531 or visit  for more information.
