Curbside Recycling

Curbside recycling is coming to the City of Huntington on October 1, 2022. Here is more information about the program and how you sign up:

 

HOW TO SIGN UP

-- Complete the registration form at rumpke.cc/huntingtonrecycles.

-- Call Rumpke Waste & Recycling at 1-800-828-8171, Ext. 8755, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and tell the agent you want to sign up for the Huntington Recycles program.

 

HOW THE SERVICE WORKS

-- Rumpke Waste & Recycling is handling the sign-up registration process, billing, customer service and pick-up service for the curbside recycling program.

-- It is a voluntary program, and it WILL NOT affect household garbage service that will continue to be provided by the City of Huntington.

-- The program is single stream, meaning residents will not be required to sort or separate recyclable materials. All accepted recyclable materials will go into a container unbagged.

-- Rumpke will deliver a 95-gallon container to subscribers before the program begins October 1.

-- Rumpke will pick up recycling once every two weeks.

 

WHAT MATERIALS ARE ACCEPTED

Paper: Cardboard boxes, newspapers, paper bags, paper cups, etc.

Plastics: milk jugs, yogurt containers, butter containers, shampoo bottles, soda bottles, laundry detergent containers, etc.

Glass: bottles and jars, all colors accepted.

Cartons: juice boxes, milk cartons, etc. (remove caps and straws)

Metal: Aluminum cans, steel soup/vegetable cans

 

WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR THE PROGRAM

-- ONLY City of Huntington residents whose household garbage is serviced by the City of Huntington. This includes owner-occupied properties and renters who live in apartment buildings with 4 or fewer units.

-- At this time, renters who live in apartment buildings with 5 or more units will not be eligible to sign up for the program. However, the city and Rumpke may pursue a pilot project with a large apartment complex in the future to determine whether it is feasible.

-- Businesses are not eligible for this residential curbside recycling program. However, Rumpke does offer commercial recycling services for businesses. Business owners inquiring about this service may call 1-800-828-8171, Ext. 8765.

 

COSTS AND CREDIT

-- The cost for residents will be $10 per month. The cost will decrease slightly if more than 1,800 customers subscribe. 

-- By signing up, residents will agree to make an up-front payment for the first six months. Customers also will pay a one-time cost of $10 for a 95-gallon container (this cost increases to $20 if you sign up after October 1). Rumpke will bill for the up-front payment in the August/September timeframe. 

-- Huntington residents who sign up will be eligible to receive a $5 per month credit on their quarterly refuse fee bill. More information will be available in the near future.
