Nearly 25% of the county's population lives in multifamily communities. Multifamily communities come in many forms such as condos, apartments, townhomes, retirement living and mobile home parks with five or more units. They are provided with one of two types of solid waste and recycling service – commercial dumpster service or individual cart service. The service received depends on the unique space and capacity characteristics of each community.
Property owners and managers are required to provide residents with access to recycling. To meet the unique needs and requirements, Clackamas County Resource Conservation & Solid Waste has recycling resources and strategies specific to multifamily communities including signs, brochures and durable bags to help transport recyclables to on-site recycling area. We also provide additional support to help with on-site recycling and waste prevention efforts including:
- Site visits to identify opportunities
- Can table at community events and give presentations
- Assistance promoting reuse and how to prevent waste in the first place.
If garbage or recycling is not provided at your building, please contact your property manager or a Clackamas County Multifamily Waste Reduction Specialist to get started.
