Volunteer to Increase Recycling

You may be interested in signing up to be a Friend of Recycling & Composting (FORC) for your property. If so, please contact your property manager and refer them to and search for “food waste FORC." Volunteers watch a DVD about recycling and sign a pledge to become a FORC.

Friends of Recycling and Composting:

  • Educate others about how to recycle and cut down their garbage.
  • Monitor the recycling bins at your apartment building.
  • Answer questions about recycling.

This program only applies to buildings with five or more units.

For more information or to sign up, call (206) 684-8717.
