Recycling is provided at no additional charge to residents who receive the City of Worthington's solid waste collection service. All of Worthington's recyclables are dropped off at Rumpke's Material Recovery Facility for sorting. Residents are provided one 65 gallon recycling cart free of charge. Residents should place all recyclable items such as paper, cardboard and plastic, glass bottles and metal cans loose in the same bin.
DO NOT BAG RECYCLABLE ITEMS. Bags of any sort pose a danger to the recycling facility and will be taken to the SWACO landfill for disposal. This not only increases the carbon footprint of collection by adding another truck to haul the items to the landfill, but also increases the cost of recycling service. As much as 15% of all items received at the recycling facility are taken to the landfill.
