Recycling in Your Community

Residential Recycling in Hamilton County Communities

Forty-eight different political jurisdictions fall within the Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District and almost all provide some form of recycling program for their residents. The most common recycling programs are:

  • Contracted Recycling Service: Some communities use tax dollars to contract out a recycling program and charge little or no direct fee to their residents for curbside recycling collection.
  • Subscription Recycling Service: Some communities allow residents to choose a waste hauler and recycling services and individually subscribe with a waste hauler for curbside recycling collection. The same waste hauler must be used for garbage and recycling services. Individual subscription means the resident will be charged for garbage and recycling.
  • Self Haul: Some communities also use tax dollars to pick up their residents' garbage and/or recycling. Residents do not see a separate bill for garbage and recycling.
  • Recycling Drop-Off Locations: Approximately 2/3 of Hamilton County communities offer recycling locations where residents can drop off recyclables at no cost (the communities' pay for the recycling drop-offs). Many communities offer drop offs in addition to a curbside recycling program. Recycling drop-off locations are open 24 hours/day unless housed in a park; in this case the drop-off is open dawn until dusk.

 

As indicated above, recycling is not free to anyone.
