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

Wastestream.  Of the 56 pounds of waste per week per single-family residential customer in 2013, about 65% were recycled. “Wastestream” for single-family households includes all curbside waste and recyclable materials and 70% 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 increased slightly from 64% in 2012 to 65% in 2013. The recycling rate has remained between 62% and 65% since 2004.
