Since 1932, our company has been committed to helping our neighbors properly dispose of their own mountains of waste. Throughout our 90-year history, our team has remained steadfast in our commitment to being a total waste solutions provider, dedicating resources, research and innovation to provide our customers with essential services that are vital for human health and the environment.

Our 14 regional landfills provide an environmentally sound and cost-effective disposal option for items as the end of their useful life, and our network of 12 recycling facilities allow our customers to divert many of these items from their waste stream to be turned into new and useful products.

Today, we are excited to announce that our customers can now add even more items to their recycling bin. Rumpke will accept paper, plastic and aluminum cups in your community’s recycling program. Styrofoam and polystyrene (#6) cups won’t be accepted.

Recently, paper mills throughout Midwest have pledged to accept paper cups and recycle into paperboard and cardboard and innovations in plastic recycling have opened up secure, long-term partners for additional types of plastic to make this change possible.  Additionally, Rumpke has upgraded technology at its facility to help recover the cups entering its plant.
