November 15 is America Recycles Day!
Butler County strives to raise recycling awareness. Many of our efforts involve helping residents understand how to Recycle Right.
As part of this effort, communication is being standardized across our region to address common items that should not be recycled in curbside recycling bins. These include plastic bags, batteries, plastic cups, coffee cups, and food service containers. Did you know all of the material captured in curbside recycling in this region is processed at Rumpke Recycling? We partner with Rumpke and other local governments to communicate the Do’s and Don'ts of recycling.
Knowing what to recycle helps make recycling work. Each and every person can take action to improve recycling this year!
