Multi-Residential Recycling Challenges
What You Can Do:
Recycling helps protect the planet. Through proper recycling, you reduce the amount of material going to the landfill.
Recycling right saves money. Recycling is partially funded through tax dollars. Proper sorting and recycling makes the process more efficient and cost-effective. Recycling more can also reduce your building’s garbage tipping fees and can also help with rising rent prices.
As a resident of an apartment, condominium or townhouse, you are responsible for making an effort to recycle. It can be tricky to know which materials are recyclable how to dispose of them properly. Luckily, we have several resources on our website to assist you.
If you’re not sure whether an item is recyclable or how to dispose of it properly, look it up using the Rethink Waste Tool.
