Recycling at Home

An average American generates nearly 1 ton of trash a year, but all that waste doesn't have to go to the landfill. Rumpke has made significant investments in recycling technology to make recycling easy and convenient at your home.

Rumpke’s program, called single stream recycling, allows all recyclables to be mixed together, and it is sorted at one of Rumpke’s advanced recycling facilities. Single stream programs focus on all recyclable materials generated by residents – not just individual items. This comprehensive approach helps divert the greatest volume of recyclable materials from landfills.

Residents can typically recycle the following items:

  • Plastic bottles and jugs
  • Glass bottles and jars
  • Aluminum cans
  • Steel cans and lids
  • Paperboard (like cereal boxes)
  • Cardboard
  • Office paper
  • Envelopes and junk mail
  • Newspapers, magazines and inserts
  • Telephone books and catalogs
  • Cartons

Rumpke offers curbside recycling and public recycling drop boxes throughout its service region.
