Whether you are a multifamily property manager or a resident of a multifamily building, there are many ways you can fine-tune your recycling habits and help provide education and resources to others in your building.

As you may have noticed, not every item placed in recycling bins is actually recyclable. In fact, up to 25% of materials placed in recycling bins are trash. Often times, these small mix-ups contaminate loads of clean, recyclable material and cause challenges at the recycling processing plant.

Luckily, you have the power to recycle often and recycle right within your residential community.
