Congratulations to Bill Rumpke, Sr.!

The Colerain Chamber of Commerce honored Bill Rumpke Sr. with the 2017 Hometown Hero Award at a dinner gala on April 27, 2017.

Bill Rumpke Sr. is a Cincinnati business icon, Colerain Township native, and longstanding community partner.  He grew up in his family’s waste collection business, working for the company as a laborer, mechanic, heavy equipment operator and driver.  Bill and his cousin purchased Rumpke from their fathers in 1978 and became the co-presidents and CEOs at Rumpke, Inc.  Together they expanded the company, growing revenues and extending into multiple states.

By 2014 Rumpke’s fleet contained about 1,500 vehicles and had grown to include 11 landfills and 10 recycling centers, with employment reaching approximately 2,700 people.

Miller-Valentine is proud to have been a Platinum Sponsor for the gala honoring Bill and his many business and civic contributions throughout the years.

In addition, Miller-Valentine Construction is pleased to partner with McGill Smith Punshon in the construction of a new headquarters facility for Rumpke, scheduled to break ground in summer 2017.


Congratulations to Bill Rumpke Sr. and the Rumpke Corporation!
