MULTI-UNIT PROPERTY OWNERS/MANAGERS
Most multi-family residents and commercial multi-tenant complexes don’t have individual trash, recycling and yard waste containers for each unit. Instead, bins are located in a central area on the property.
Property owners or management companies that are the billing party for shared waste service at their property need to provide recycling and organics (green bin*) containers at their property.
Property owners or management companies that require their tenants to enroll in their own waste services will need to require their tenants to subscribe to recycling and organics (green bin*) service.
For more information as to what goes in the gray, blue and green bins/containers – click here.
Tenants are required to properly sort their waste into the correct containers: green for organics (food scraps and plant trimmings), blue for recyclable materials, and gray for trash.
Property owners and managers are required to:
- Annually educate employees and tenants on how to properly sort organic waste into the correct bins, AND
- Provide information to new tenants within 14 days of occupancy of the premises.
Below are educational pieces you can print and provide to tenants or post at your property.
