Tips for Setting Up a Recycling Program at an Apartment or Condominium


  1. Start a conversation with the landlord, property management team or HOA about getting recycling.
  2. Encourage other tenants to obtain a commitment from the property owners to add recycling services.
  3. Find out if the current waste hauler also provides recycling services.
  4. Negotiate the costs of recycling collection service with existing hauler or another hauling company.  Recycling costs might be offset by reduced trash collection services.
  5. Select a recycling hauler and determine a collection schedule.
  6. Be sure recycling containers are placed in common areas and are clearly identified.
  7. Appoint a recycling coordinator to monitor services.
  8. Kick-off the launch of the recycling program with a ceremony and memo from property management.
