We know recycling is a priority for many, but we also know it can be challenging if you’re a renter living at a complex that doesn’t offer a recycling service. If this is the case where you live, it might be time to start advocating for a program with your property manager. Here are some incentives from SWACO to share with your property manager (or better yet, just forward them this email!):
- It’s easy to get started! SWACO can connect property managers with recycling service haulers that offer several on-property options. Remember, recycling doesn’t have to be an additional expense. In fact, some properties implement recycling as a revenue stream!
- Plenty of resident resources! If your multifamily complex implements recycling services, SWACO offers a free Resident Education Tool Kit that helps educate residents on how to recycle the right way. SWACO will even deploy the kits to each tenant’s door for FREE. Each resident will receive a reusable tote to carry their recyclable materials to the dumpster, a recycling cling to remind residents of acceptable materials and a frequently asked questions flyer that offers guidance on the most common recycling questions.
- Property manager support! SWACO also offers a free Property Managers Tool Kit that provides directional signage, posters and informational yard stake signage to help guide residents to recycling on-site.
Learn more about how SWACO can support recycling at your complex by visiting our Multifamily Recycling Program page.
