Rumpke Expands Recycling Collection to Include Plastic Containers
Now accepting yogurt containers, butter tubs and fruit cups.

Did you know that more than half of all your trash is recyclable? Rumpke Waste & Recycling customers can now recycle empty food containers and tubs thanks in part to a grant from The Recycling Partnership's Polypropylene Recycling Coalition.

Rumpke is using the grant to install additional equipment to help better sort recyclable items. The new equipment makes it possible for Rumpke to recycle food containers like yogurt containers, fruit cups, butter tubs, sour cream tubs, cottage cheese tubs and whipped topping tubs. 

The following items can be placed in recycling bins and carts:

  • Plastic bottles, jugs and tubs (butter, sour cream, cottage cheese tubs as well as yogurt and fruit cups). Reattach the lids on the containers when you recycle them.
  • Cartons.
  • Glass bottles and jars (any color).
  • Aluminum and steel cans.
  • Paper, paper board (cereal boxes, 12-pack containers, mail, etc.) and cardboard.
