There are a few misconceptions on what can and cannot be recycled. The biggest one is the found on everything. It doesn't mean squat. Just because an item has doesn't mean your local recycling plant will recycle it. If you have Rumpke please read the below facts.
Fact #1: Plastic, Rumpke will only recycle plastic that is considered to be a bottle. It is considered a bottle when the opening is smaller than the body. Even quart oil bottles can be recycled. Rumpke will NOT recycle your yogurt cups, salad containers, ANYTHING else that is not a bottle. Even if the pieice of plastic has the on it. Please buy giant tubs of yogurts and salads to prevent throwing away larger quantities of plastic. Rumpke does not recycle plastic bags, at all. Please use tote bags for the grocery or return them to your local store.
Fact #2: Metal, Rumpke will recycle all cans. Several people tend to think you cannot recycle aerosol cans, You Can (pun intended)! Just remove the plastic tip and you're done! Everything else, please re-use, donate, or scrap, because Rumpke won't take it. You can return rusty old hangers to any dry cleaners and they will gladly take them and refurbish them.
As a country we need to use less and we need to learn how to re-use, like our parents and grandparents did. They re-used everything! Can you show me any pictures of something you re-use or re-purposed? #happyearthday #recycle #gogreen #miamiuniversity #goredhawks #plantatree #plantahundredtrees
