The City of Mayfield Heights recently awarded an exclusive contract, effective January 1, 2021, for all residential refuse and recycling collection to Kimble Recycling & Disposal, Inc. (Kimble). Kimble is a local family owned business with 68 years of experience in the refuse industry. (Learn more about Kimble at kimblecompanies.com).
In addition to a reputation for excellent service, Kimble will utilize trucks powered by natural gas which operate more quietly and efficiently. Natural Gas is a cleaner burning fuel (less emissions) which improves the environment of the City’s neighborhoods. The natural gas is also generated here in Eastern Ohio, which helps the local economy and reduces dependency on foreign oil.
