Commonly acceptable metals include:
- Aluminum cans: beverage and food cans.
- Steel cans: soup, food and aerosol cans.
- Scrap metal (except at Rumpke Recycling buy-back centers)
- Pots and pans
- Coat hangers
- Paint cans
Rumpke Recycling's Public Buy-Back Centers accept a wide variety of scrap metals.
After Rumpke Recycling collects recyclable materials, they are brought to and processed at one of our Materials Recovery Facilities (MRF). At the MRF, recyclables are separated by category and prepared for their respective markets. Materials are then shipped to manufacturers who recycle them into new products.
