HISTORY OF RUMPKE

And Recycling at the Colerain Location

 

Rumpke’s history dates back to the1930s when founder  William F. Rumpke ran a junkyard and coal delivery business  in Cincinnati. His customers often bartered sheep, chickens and old cars and trucks as payment for his services.  One day, he was paid with six young pigs. William fixed up some old trucks from the junkyard and enlisted relatives to search for garbage to feed the pigs. William J. Rumpke (who is currently President Emeritus and chairman of the board for Rumpke Waste & Recycling) was only five years old when he began helping his father collect trash from homes and businesses.
