Residential Recycling

  • Target Communities: Read how local communities improved their recycling rates with assistance from the District.
  • Community Recycling Rates: Learn how your community's recycling rate compares to other communities in Hamilton County by viewing the Residential Recycling Statistics page.
  • Residential Recycling Incentive (RRI): The District divides $900,000 annually in RRI funds among Hamilton County communities as an incentive to increase recycling and reduce waste. As a community increases its diversion rate and tons of materials are collected, the community receives more RRI funds. For information regarding the Residential Recycling Incentive program (DOCX), email Michelle Balz or call 513-946-7789.
