Waste and Recycling
Waste & Recycling
City role: Significant 
 Two measures: single-family wastestream (lbs/household/week), and single-family recycling rate.

Wastestream. The amount of waste per week per single-family customer per week remained at 53 pounds, the same as in 2014 and the lowest figure reported since the beginning of Community Indicators. “Wastestream” for single-family households includes all curbside waste and recyclable materials and 70 percent of recycling event materials. The City’s goal is to reduce single-family waste to 50 pounds per week per single-family customer by 2020.

Recycling rate. The recycling rate for single-family customers remained at 64 percent 2015. The recycling rate has remained between 62% and 65% since 2004.
