This map reflects the far reaching impacts of Rumpke's planned Whitewater Township landfill
Rumpke's new landfill will sit between Bond Road and Sand Run Road, on the border of Ohio and Indiana
Rumpke's history dates back to the 1930's, and by 1945 they moved to the rural community of Colerain, where they started their landfill business on an 80 acre property. At that time, Colerain was a rural, isolated area 10 miles north of Cincinnati, predating the freeway systems. Colerain Township has continued to be build up around the Rumpke landfill to become the bustling area it is today. Rumpke has been a staple there ever since, expanding multiple times to become the largest landfill in Ohio and one of the largest in the entire country. It has even earned the nickname "Mt. Rumpke" for its towering size; it sits 1,075 feet above sea level, making it the largest landform/mass in Hamilton County, Ohio. If you ask anybody who grew up or lived there, they can tell you exactly what that means.
