As part of Rumpke’s ongoing commitment to ensure our customers can recycle the most amount of material possible – we are once again growing our acceptable items list, by implementing the Hefty ReNew™ program in the region.

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. Beginning in April, residents in seven Miami Valley counties, including Montgomery, Greene, Clinton, Clark, Miami, Darke and Preble can participate.

People who choose to participate can purchase Hefty ReNew™ orange bags at their local Kroger, Walmart, Meijer, Target or Ace Hardware.  For additional online options, visit Each orange bag features a list of hard-to-recycle items like Styrofoam and plastic bags 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 or public recycling drop box 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 or community drop boxes loose and un-bagged.

Businesses and municipalities will soon be able to order commercial size bags directly from Rumpke.
