Apartment & Multi-Family Recycling

How to Start A Program at Your Apartment or Condo
According to California law, multifamily dwelling units (e.g. apartment complexes) of five units or more are required to arrange for recycling services.

The good news is building owners or managers can sign up for FREE apartment recycling! Recycling & Waste Reduction
Not only is recycling service free in the City of Monterey, but it can actually save your complex money! You pay to throw away, so the more you can divert to the recycling container, the less you will haul to the landfill. 

*To have recycling service at your apartment, you must have a storage area that is:

  • Hard, flat and level
  • Convenient for tenants and collection vehicles to access or
  • The ability to get your recycling bins to and from the curbside on your day of service
