Now accepting yogurt containers, butter tubs and fruit cups.
Did you know that more than half of all your trash is recyclable? And Rumpke is committed to recycling even more. Introducing tub recycling! Plastic bottles and jugs and now other containers such as butter, sour cream and cottage cheese tubs as well as yogurt and fruit cups are now acceptable in Rumpke’s curbside and drop box programs. Like with other items on Rumpke’s acceptable item list, Rumpke has stable, long-term end users for this material.
The addition of tubs is made possible with a grant from The Recycling Partnership. The funding helps Rumpke add nearly $2 million in new sorting to better extract these containers for plastic recycling.
So yogurt lovers rejoice! It’s time to toss those tubs in your bin. Check out the information below to learn more about all the materials you can recycle through your Rumpke recycling program!
