Residential Recycling Statistics

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 for their residents.

The recycling rate is the percentage of all waste that is recycled and is calculated as follows: Recycling Rate = Tons of Recyclables/(Tons of Waste + Tons of Recyclables) 


*2013: Rumpke Recycling improved accuracy for calculating recycling drop-off tonnage leading to a decrease in reported residential tons recycled.
