questionsWhere do I call for trash service?

Residents of Vandalia are provided with refuse collection. For more info regarding pickup in your neighborhood, call 898-3750. Every home receives a plastic bin for the recycling of glass, metal cans, cardboard, some plastics and newspaper. These items are picked up along with household trash.

When is large/bulk item pick up?

Whenever your regular trash is collected, pickup of extra-large trash items is available through the city’s contracted waste hauler, Rumpke.
