Residential Recycling

  • Target Communities: Read how local communities improved their recycling rates with assistance from the District.
  • Community Recycling Rates: Learn how your community's recycling rate compares to other communities in Hamilton County.
  • Residential Recycling Incentive (RRI): The District divides $900,000 annually in RRI funds among Hamilton County communities as an incentive to increase recycling and reduce waste. As a community increases their diversion rate and tons of materials collected, the community receives more RRI funds. For information regarding the Residential Recycling Incentive program, contact Michelle Balz at 513-946-7789
