Yard Trimmings Drop-Off

Yard Trimming Drop Off 2020


The Yard Trimmings sites at Bzak Landscaping and Rumpke are accepting residential yard trimmings. However, in keeping with the Ohio Department of Health and Governor DeWine’s Stay at Home order, we strongly encourage residents to retain their materials on their property until the Stay at Home Order has been lifted on May 1. In an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, both Hamilton County and Ohio Departments of Health recommend that people only leave their homes for essential trips, such as going to the grocery store, pharmacy, medical appointments, and outdoor exercise. If you must leave home, maintain a 6 foot distance from others, wear a face covering, and wash hands when you return.

Please check our website to see if your community is currently offering yard trimming pick-up so your materials may be picked up curbside.

If you choose to drop-off yard trimming materials, please follow the signs and instructions for no-contact drop off and social distancing. We all have a role to play in flattening the curve. Thank you.
