What items can be recycled?

Rumpke, the city’s refuse and recycling hauler has provided the following information:

In our residential recycling program, you no longer have to separate items by material type.  Simply place all recyclable materials in a single container for the collection truck, and we’ll handle the rest.

Residents can typically recycle the following items:

  • Plastic bottles, jugs, and tubs
  • 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

For additional details on items you can recycle, please see our acceptable items list. On collection day, your recycling will go through our system and be reliably sorted by material type.

You’ll be doing your part to help protect the environment while we make residential waste disposal easier for you.
