Rumpke Waste & Recycling 3 days ago

It's a seemingly simple invention but it continues to make a world of difference. The paper bag has been around since the 1850s and has served many purposes over the years (grocery carrier, fruit ripener, etc). Regardless of how people have historically used paper bags, one important fact remains true: They are recyclable! They are a far more environmentally friendly option than plastic bags and for that reason, we advocate their use on this #PaperBagDay

Glass makes up 15-20% of what Rumpke collects from its residential recycling customers. The recycled glass from the Cincinnati and Columbus regions is shipped to our state of the art glass recovery facility in Dayton, OH. There, it is ground into particles the size of a grain of sand and used to manufacture fiberglass insulation. Optical scanners are also used to sort larger pieces of glass according to color (clear or amber) to be made into new bottles. Either way, glass can be recycled over and over again. #rumpke #recycle #KnowWasteWednesday
