Recycling is good for the environment and it’s the law—City ordinance (pdf) bans recyclable paper, cardboard, glass and plastic bottles, and aluminum and tin cans from garbage containers.
When you recycle, you help keep garbage rates lower at your property and you conserve resources as well as reduce impact on climate change.
As of July 15, 2011 new water/sewer/garbage accounts are no longer opened in tenant names. Learn more >
Current accounts in tenant names will remain active until closing is requested.
Many items aren’t accepted in home recycling but can be taken to the Recycling & Disposal Stations or private recyclers. These include vehicle batteries and tires. Reusing items also keeps them out of the waste stream. See our ideas for Reduce, Reuse and Exchange.
