City of Cincinnati garbage
The Cincinnati Recycling Program accepts the following materials:
- Office paper
- Junk mail and envelopes (with or without windows)
- Telephone books
- Paper grocery bags
Should It Be In A Garbage Bag?
No, please just place your recyclable items in the cart or bin. The only exception is shredded paper, which may be placed in a clear plastic bag.
Plastic Grocery Bags
Plastic bags aren’t currently accepted in the City’s curbside recycling program due to the stringent standards for the reselling of this material. Manufactures require plastic bags be clean, dry and in like-new condition to use in the manufacturing process. Due to the collection and separation process; Rumpke Recycling can’t meet manufacturer’s standards.
