State law requires that apartment communities/multi-family housing with 5 or more units must recycle.

How To Get Started:

  • Make sure residents separate recyclable items from trash inside their home.
  • Tell residents they must place recyclable items in outside recycling containers for collection.
  • Make sure residents know where outside recycling containers are located.

Note: any business or individual may donate, sell and/or otherwise arrange for pickup of recyclable materials by contacting your garbage hauler.
