Annual Licensed Waste Hauler Recycling Rates
Recycling rates are calculated by dividing the total amount of recyclables by the total amount of solid waste hauled. By City ordinance, all licensed commercial waste haulers are annually required to achieve the standard of at least 80 percent of the recycling goal. In 2018, the recycling standard was 18.2 percent. Haulers who do not meet the standard receive a surcharge. Haulers with a recycling rate of 34.2 percent or more receive a rebate.
