MITCHELL – Beginning this week, Tolbert’s Disposal customers will be serviced by Rumpke Waste and Recycling. Chris and Jenny Tolbert of Tolbert’s Disposal have decided to sell certain waste collection assets to fellow family business, Rumpke.

“Jenny and I have enjoyed growing our trash business here in Lawrence County; however, we have decided to try our hand at something new. We are very thankful for our customers and their many years of support,” said Chris Tolbert, Owner Tolbert’s Disposal.

Tolbert and Rumpke are in the process of notifying all customers of the change in the service provider. Rates and service days will initially remain the same.
