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.

District Priority Grant
The District Priority Grant Program will distribute grant dollars through competitive grants in 2015.

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 2015 grant cycle are as follows:
- Recycling in public areas
- School district-wide waste diversion projects
- Reusing or recycling textiles
