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 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.

See this link for help in increasing your community's recycling rate.
