Waste management for apartment tenants is a little more complicated than it is for homeowners. In an apartment complex, you can’t put your recycling bins in the garage or the side of the house. That means apartment recycling bins need to be adaptable. The good news is, unlike houses that are subject to municipal recycling programs… an apartment recycling program can be customized to fit the needs of the building.
For each individual apartment, in-unit recycling and organics containers are often provided by your local municipality. However, the larger recycling bins with lids found in most apartment lobbies, parking garages, or “garbage rooms” are provided by the complex. Oftentimes these recycling bins are under-utilized and most waste ends up in the garbage chute instead of getting sorted into the apartment recycling bins.
