Reminder: Brown Wheelers are for trash, and Green Wheelers are for recycling.

Recycling Collection

The City’s recycling program through Rumpke includes a curbside collection of paper, plastic bottles, jugs, tubs, and cups, metal cans and cups, glass bottles and jars, and cartons.

Recyclable materials are placed at the curb in a (Green) recycling wheeler. Materials, which will not fit in the bins, should be put in a paper bag and placed on top, or next to the recycling wheeler. Cardboard boxes are to be broken down to a size that fits in the wheeler.

Acceptable Recyclables

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.

The recycling industry changes frequently as new partners are found that accept additional types of materials to be recycled. It is difficult to provide a comprehensive list of every item that can be recycled but the Recycle These Items (PDF) should help you decide if an item can go in your bin or not. Also, Rumpke has announced that a recycling partner has been found that can accept cups! View the Recycling FAQ (PDF).


The list of items that are not recyclable and that cannot go in your recycling wheeler continues to decrease however below is the current list of what cannot be recycled at this time:

  • Plastic bags
  • Hazardous materials such as batteries
  • Tanglers such as clothing, dog leashes, and garden hoses
  • Scrap metal, including pots and pans

Visit the Rumpke website for additional information on recycling.

Recycling Dumpsters

Recycling dumpsters are now located at the Recreation Center, in the parking lot behind Spring Valley Bank, and in the Wyoming Primary School locations.

Lost or Stolen Recycling Wheelers

If your green Rumpke recycling wheeler is lost or has been stolen, Rumpke is asking for your assistance in recovering it by completing the Stolen Rumpke Recycling Cart Form (PDF). After completing it, please mail it to Rumpke Recycling at 5535 Vine Street, Cincinnati, OH 45217.

Additional Recycling Wheelers

Wyoming residents are provided one free recycling wheeler (Green) per household. If you would like to have an additional recycling wheeler you may either lease or purchase an additional wheeler directly from Rumpke. Contact them at 1-800-828-8171 and they will provide you with the rates and answer any questions you may have.

Another excellent recycling resource is the Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District. If you have something to throw out and are not sure where it goes or if it can go, contact them and they can help! Their phone number is 513-946-7766 or visit the Hamilton County Recycles website.
