More Tri-Staters are recycling but some are still confused as to what Rumpke, the area's largest recycler, will accept.
In the first quarter of this year Rumpke reports a 7 percent increase in recycling when compared to the same period last year. Its Cincinnati recycling center processed about 40,000 tons, up from 37,000 tons in the first quarter of 2014.
The Cincinnati facility is getting a workout. Rumpke processed more than 318 million pounds of material in 2014.
