Recycling

REMINDER: BROWN WHEELERS ARE FOR TRASH, GREEN WHEELERS ARE FOR RECYCLING.

Recycling Collection
The City’s recycling program includes curbside collection of glass, cans, plastic- including plastic lids, corrugated cardboard, magazines, catalogs, and newspapers.

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.

Residents can typically recycle the following items:

  • Plastic bottles, jugs and tubs – you can leave the lids ON. Flatten the container so it takes up less space in your bin. These containers include (but are not limited to) water/soda bottles, shampoo, lotion, ketchup/mustard, milk/juice, detergent and yogurt tubs.
  • Glass bottles and jars – please clean the items and remove the lid. It is okay to leave the labels on. Please do not include broken glass.
  • Aluminum and steel cans and lids – aluminum, bi-metal beverage, steel, aerosol, and tin. Please rinse the cans. It is okay to leave the labels on. Non-hazardous, non-flammable material only.
  • Paperboard (like cereal boxes), corrugated cardboard, with fluted or waffled centers – make sure to break down boxes so it take up less space in your wheeler.
  • Office paper and paper products (including but not limited to) milk/juice carton, boxes, envelopes, paper, magazines, newspaper, clean pizza boxes, and general cardboard. Please clean out these containers and remove any liners, bags, tray, handles, or metal.
  • Aerosol cans – non-hazardous, non-flammable, and empty (very important!)
  • Newspapers, magazines and inserts
  • Telephone books and catalogs.

Recycling Outlets
The following link will connect you to a list of recyclers providing services to Greater Cincinnati Area businesses and sometimes residents.

Please contact the individual companies listed for your recycling needs and/or questions.

The Hamilton County Solid Waste District has not audited all the facilities listed on this link/page. Should you have a concern of what each company does with your item once you drop it off, recyclers should provide a certificate of recycling and be able to tell you where each piece of demanufactured equipment is sent.
