Spring is here, and that means it’s time for an annual spring cleaning! This is the time when many of our Cincinnati, OH-area customers clean house and declutter the items they no longer need or want. As they’re making their toss and donate piles, many often ask how to recycle items like batteries, plastic, plastic bags, and paper. At INFINITI of Northern Kentucky, we have your guide on how to recycle batteries and other top recyclable materials. Feel free to contact us with any questions.

What Can I Recycle?

Many people often wonder what they can recycle. Below are the items you can recycle:

  • Clean bottles
  • Cans
  • Paper
  • Cardboard

You need to keep food and liquid out of your recycling, and you can’t recycle loose plastic bags or bagged recyclables. 

How to Recycle Paper

If you own a home or rent an apartment, you should have access to a recycle bin. Whether it’s one you have in your Florence-area garage or by the garage dumpster at your apartment. You can place flattened cardboard boxes, food and beverage cans, plastic bottles, and plastic containers in a recycle bin. 

Not acceptable for a recycle bin

  • No baggable recyclables
  • No plastic bags
  • No plastic wrap and film
  • No flexible packaging
  • No cups with wax or plastic coatings
  • No polystyrene foam and plastic (takeout containers)
  • No tangling items
  • No dirty diapers
  • No household items
  • No medical waste
  • No garage waste like batteries

While many often search how to recycle plastic, how to recycle plastic bags, and how to recycle batteries, these are items you can’t recycle.

Your Local Recycle Center

Don’t have a recycle bin nor does your apartment complex? That’s okay – a quick search shows your local recycling center’s location. Give them a call for details about what they take and anything else that you should know.
