Rumpke handles our curbside recycling, but they only take a limited amount of materials. This means most other recyclables, like plastic bags, packaging, food containers, and aluminum trays, need to be taken to the Cincinnati Reuse Recycle Hub. The Challenge? The hub is a 35-minute drive and only accepts drop-offs once a month. How to keep these recyclables organized and sorted until I could take them to the hub.


We labeled two recycle bins, one as Rumpke and another as Hub. To the hub recycle bin, we attached a small bucket, to store any small / tiny recyclables, like milk carton tabs, batteries, candy wraps etc. If we keep the small ones separate, it will be much easier to sort. See the image blow.
Once a week, on the Rumpke pickup day, we would sort all the hub items into common categories: Store Drop-offs, Flexible Films, # 1 #5 #6 Hard Plastics, Styrofoam . Aluminium. 

This way, our recyclables are very organized until we take it to the Hub. Besides, sorting becomes easier.
