Rumpke Expands Recycling Services

Friday, Feb 4, 2022 at 4:30 pm


On Wednesday of this week, Rumpke announced that they have expanded the residential recycling program to include paper, plastic, and aluminum cups. The addition of these materials to the recycling program is a big accomplishment for area residents and businesses who have long advocated for this change.

New items being accepted:

  • Paper cups: Empty and remove lids
  • Plastic cups: Empty and remove straws. Keep lids on the cup if there is one.
  • Aluminum cups: Empty and avoid stacking together 

This includes poly-lined paper cups such as disposable “to-go” coffee cups. The paper sleeves frequently added to these cups are also accepted, but the plastic lids should be thrown away. Plastic fast-food cups are also accepted. Empty them, remove straws, and place the plastic lids back on. Please avoid throwing the lids loosely into your toter.

With the addition of cups, Franklin County’s current list of acceptable materials includes the following items: Paper and cardboard, plastic bottles, tubs and jugs, glass bottles and jars, metal cans, cartons and disposable cups.
