District Priority Grant
The purpose of the District Priority Grant is to assist communities, schools, and non-profit organizations in implementing innovative waste reduction and recycling programs. The District intends the District Priority Grant to unify waste reduction and recycling efforts across Hamilton County by addressing three key solid waste issues. Priorities for the 2016 grant cycle are as follows:
- School District-Wide Waste Diversion
- Special Venue Recycling (entertainment districts, sporting/art venues, parks, etc.)
- Waste Reduction Projects (replacing disposables with reusable tableware, etc.)
Applications will no longer be accpeted for the 2016 grant cycle. The deadline for the 2016 District Priority Grant Application was September 30. Please check back for information on the 2017 grant cycle.
For more information or to discuss potential grant ideas, contact Cher Mohring at 513-946-7737.

Residential Recycling Incentive (RRI)
The District divides $1,050,000 annually in RRI funds among Hamilton County communities as an incentive to increase recycling. As a community increases their recycling rate and tons of materials collected the community receives more RRI funds.
