Plastic Recycling = Bottles & Jugs Only


It may surprise you to learn that in Clermont & Adams Counties (and all of Greater Cincinnati), the only plastics allowed in recycling bins are bottles & jugs. Don’t pay attention to the numbers on plastics – if the mouth is smaller than the body, the plastic bottle or jug is recyclable. Some examples of plastics that are not acceptable for recycling are yogurt containers, butter tubs, clear plastic clamshells, polystyrene (Styrofoam), and plastic bags.
