Solid Waste Plan Update
Hamilton County R3Source (formerly Hamilton County Recycling and Solid Waste District) is currently updating its 15-year Solid Waste Plan, as required by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. The update process takes place every five years. A solid waste plan is a guidance document that a local solid waste district uses to implement programs and initiatives to continually improve recycling and waste reduction within its jurisdiction.
Throughout the process, we will maintain transparency by providing documents for public review on this webpage.
