Hefty ReNew Bag Program

By Ellen Hall, EAC Member

Discover a convenient way to recycle more plastic

Grocery bags, candy wrappers, plastic straws, and Styrofoam™️ cups no longer need to end up in the landfill. Thanks to an initiative between Rumpke Waste and Recycling and the Hefty ReNew™ program, you can recycle more plastics right from home.

The Hefty ReNew program complements — but does not replace — your current recycling routine. You’ll continue to recycle all your regular items the same way, but now you can put other items like cling wrap and cereal box liners in an orange Hefty ReNew bag and drop it in, too.

How does the Hefty ReNew program work?

  • Buy the orange Hefty ReNew bags at Kroger, Target, or
    Walmart. A box of 20 bags costs $7-$8, which covers
    the costs of the bags, collection, and processing.
  • Fill the bag with the items listed below.
  • When it’s full, tie the bag and place it in your curbside
    Rumpke recycling bin or a public drop-off dumpster.
