Fill a Hefty ReNew bag with hard-to-recycle plastics such as salad bags, cereal and cracker box liners, shredded cheese packages, bubble wrap, foam egg cartons and more! Tie up the bag and place it in your Rumpke Recycling bin or public recycling drop box for collection.
Hefty ReNew is not intended to replace your normal recycling routine; it will complement it! Continue putting paper, cardboard, cartons, glass and plastic bottles, tubs, cups, aluminum cans and steel cans in your Rumpke bins or community drop boxes loose and unbagged.

Many items that say they are “recyclable” do not belong in your curbside cart.  Some materials must be recycled at special outlets. The recycling center where items from curbside recycling are taken does not have the capability of separating and recycling batteries, plastic bags, tires, any plastics not in the shape of a bottle or jug, Styrofoam, electronics, and hazardous waste.
