 Multi-Family Units Recycling Information

Multi-family properties, for solid waste purposes, are defined as consisting of five units or more. They include apartment complexes, condos, mobile home parks, etc.

On-site recycling programs will include fiber (paper, newspaper, cardboard) and commingled containers (bottles, cans, plastic #1-#7).

The franchise hauler providing garbage service provides recycling service at no additional cost.

Multi-family properties must educate new tenants upon residency and remind tenants, at a minimum annually, regarding the property's recycling program. Education should indicate the What, How, and Where of the recycling program components. Some examples of educational materials include:

  • Informational posters
  • Distribution flyers
  • Common area postings
  • Other creative ideas to spread the word about the company's program


Complete a Recycling Plan Form and maintain it on site for review by County staff.

New properties must start a recycling program within 14 days of commencing garbage service.
