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.

The Public Works Department manages the contract for waste, recycling, and yard waste removal and for special waste services for all residents through a contract with Rumpke. 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) rolling recycling container. Materials, which will not fit in the bins, should be put in a paper bag and placed on top, or next to the bins.

The blue (or white, or grey) “Wyoming Recycles” bins are no longer being provided by the City because they are no longer being manufactured for Rumpke. If you are still using these bins, if they should become so damaged to the point that they would need to be destroyed, you will then need to switch to the 65-gallon rolling recycling wheeler. If you would like to place an order for a rolling recycling wheeler please contact Rumpke at 1-800-828-8171. If you have never had a rolling recycling wheeler please let them know that this is your first order (which should be your one free wheeler).  You can direct other questions to the Customer Service Department at 513.821.7600 or by email or call Rumpke directly at 1-800-828-8171.


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 and jugs – leave the lids ON. Please leave the cap on if it is plastic. 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.
  • 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 bin.
  • 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.
