Household Waste Collection
The Village of Ansonia has an exclusive contract with Rumpke Waste Systems to collect and dispose of residential trash.
Why we entered into this contract
- To insure a reasonable price for this service.
- To insure good service for the residents of the Village.
- To have consistency in when trash is collected. With only one authorized waste hauler there will not be trash setting out all over town on different days because of schedules of other haulers.
All residents in the Village must use Rumpke as their waste hauler.
Trash is collected on Tuesday morning for all residences of Ansonia. Trash should be set out at the street no more than 24 hours prior to collection.
