How is ReWorks funded?

ReWorks is funded by a "generation fee" that is collected for every ton of solid waste (i.e. trash) that is generated within Summit County. The $5 per ton generation fee is submitted to ReWorks by the landfills and transfer stations that receive trash coming from Summit County residents and businesses. This fee funds programs, services, and outreach on recycling, composting, waste reduction, and other materials management opportunities for Summit County residents, municipalities, and businesses.
