Rumpke breaks ground on new headquarters in Colerain Township
Trash-collection giant Rumpke broke ground Wednesday morning on a $20 million headquarters that will eventually house more than 200 employees. "Our company has grown dramatically over the years, and it was time for us to build a headquarters, and there's no better place to be than here in our hometown of Colerain Township," said CEO/President Bill Rumpke Jr. "It's a long time coming." The 85-year-old company has been part of Colerain Township for more than 70 years and currently houses its employees in various locations across the city. The 74,000-square-foot, three-story building will be located on Colerain Avenue at Struble Road. At the ceremony Wednesday morning, Rumpke Waste and Recycling employees and township officials listened in on the progress being made and saw renderings of what the state-of-the-art headquarters will look like once it's completed in fall 2018. Colerain Township officials on hand also spoke, saying the construction is a great investment into the community that they hope will attract more light industry to the area.
