Yogurt eaters rejoice! Rumpke has expanded their services to accept certain plastic #5 items.
As of January 11, 2021, Rumpke is accepting plastic tubs in its recycling program. These items have been incredibly hard to recycle properly in central Ohio, and we are excited about this update! Toss your yogurt containers, fruit cups, butter tubs, sour cream tubs, cottage cheese tubs and whipped topping tubs in your recycling carts with other acceptable items.
Rumpke has secured long-term contracts with stable, regional end users for this material, ensuring that these containers are converted into new plastic containers.
