Like it or not, Curbside recycling is a reality in Mariemont. The Mayor, invoking the ’emergency clause’, pushed through approval of the contract modification with Rumpke without public debate at the Council meeting on Monday, February 10th. This council meeting can be viewed on this link to ICRC. I predict that Curb-side garbage collection is in the works for the next year. Make no mistake, the Mayor is fully responsible for this change in Village services and not Rumpke, as is implied in the Rumpke postcard that was sent to all residents in Mariemont and can be viewed below.
