She concludes, “Recycling also saves landfill space. Current studies show that more than half of what people discard into landfills on a daily basis could be reduced, reused or recycled. Currently, Rumpke estimates its Colerain Township Landfill has 13 years of disposal space left under its current permit. Rumpke is trying to expand the site to provide an additional 30 years of disposal capacity.”
