Holiday weeks, including the weeks following Christmas, are extra busy at Rumpke’s recycling centers. Their recycling centers will see a 20 to 30 percent increase in the amount of material collected and processed. But remember, not everything St. Nick places under your tree is recyclable. Please take a moment to review our naughty and nice recycling list before tossing an item into your recycling container.
