Information and training to tenants, employees, and contractors, including janitors, on how to separate recyclables and landfill trash.
Property owners and managers are required to provide tenants with recycling collection services and an appropriate number of color-coated and labeled recycling toters (at least 1 container for every garbage bin is a good idea) or a dumpster. For tenants in buildings with less then 6 units, dark green for recyclables, and brown for household trash only.
Apartment/multi-family owners will be fined if they fail to provide tenants with recycling collection services.
Re-education to tenants, employees, and contractors at least once a year.
Use the Toolkit for Recycling Compliance ( brochures, posters, signs, a visit) or contact (203) 977-4117 for customized assistance for owners of an apartment building with less than 6 units. For owners of an apartment complex of more than 6 units, please contact your Hauler.
