Hamilton County R3Source is a County organization, established by State law, responsible for ensuring that the County achieves State-mandated goals for recycling and waste reduction. R3Source achieves these goals through the implementation of waste reduction programs targeted to residents, communities, businesses, and schools.
State law requires the formation of a local Solid Waste Management District Policy Committee to oversee the writing and implementation of Hamilton County R3Source's Solid Waste Plan.
Hamilton County R3Source is required to develop a 15-year solid waste management plan (PDF) to determine the solid waste management needs of the County and to provide an agenda for implementing programs to meet those needs. The current plan covers a planning period from 2018 through 2032. As required by State law, the plan will undergo a complete update every five years.
