Buffalo City Charter requires apartments, condominiums and other multifamily communities to provide recycling service along with garbage. And the City provides curbside pickup of recycling for free!
Multifamily recycling programs face challenges that are very different from single/double household curbside recycling programs. For example, multifamily residential buildings may face high occupancy turnover, space restrictions, and diverse building size, structure, and demographics.
The City of Buffalo, through a grant from the Recycling Partnership, is conducting a multifamily property pilot project. The Let’s DO This Together Apartment Recycling Program seeks to improve multifamily recycling systems by distributing resources and tools to improve the quantity and quality of recyclables collected from multi-tenant locations.
Check out the multiple resources we have to offer. Request and distribute guides and reminders, and be sure the totes are labeled and instructions are visible and understandable. Tenants living in participating buildings will receive a free in-apartment recycling bag.
