Hamilton County recycling by the numbers

Mariemont, Wyoming and Montgomery are Hamilton County's top three recycling neighborhoods.

A recent study suggests 40 percent of what Hamilton County sends to the landfill could be diverted by recycling.

Rounding out the top ten recycling communities are Terrace Park, Madeira, Blue Ash, Indian Hill, Glendale, Loveland and Evendale.
