As part of Rumpke’s ongoing commitment to ensure customers can recycle the most amount of material possible – they are once again growing their acceptable items list, by implementing the Hefty ReNew™ program in Greater Cincinnati.
Beginning in November, Hefty ReNew™ is a hard-to-recycle plastics recovery program that offers residents and businesses served by Rumpke Recycling a convenient way to divert more waste from landfills.
People who choose to participate can purchase Hefty ReNew™ orange bags at their local Kroger store or online at Kroger.com. For additional online options, visit HeftyReNew.com. Each orange bag features a list of hard-to-recycle items that can be collected in the bag for recycling. Simply fill the bag with those items and when it’s full, tie it up and then place the bag in a Rumpke Recycling bin for collection. It’s that easy! Rumpke will then collect the recycling bins, sort each material by commodity type as it typically does, while pulling out the Hefty® ReNew® orange bags. The bags will then be sent to specialized recyclers that will use the materials to create new and useful products including plastic lumber and irrigation blocks.
The Hefty ReNew™ program is intended to complement, but not replace, current recycling routines. Therefore, it’s important for Rumpke Recycling customers to continue putting paper, cardboard, cartons, glass and plastic bottles, tubs, cups, aluminum cans and steel cans in their Rumpke bins loose and unbagged.
