Nearly 25% of Clackamas County's population lives in multifamily communities. Multifamily communities include condos, apartments, townhomes, retirement and assisted 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. If garbage or recycling is not provided at your community, please contact a Clackamas County Multifamily Waste Reduction Specialist to get started.
We offer recycling resources to meet the unique needs of multifamily communities including signs, brochures and durable bags to help transport recyclables to on-site recycling areas.
We also provide the following support to help with on-site recycling and waste prevention:
- Site visits and waste reduction consultation
- Presentations at tenant association and community room events
- Information for tenant newsletters, emails and new tenant packets
- Assistance promoting reuse and how to prevent waste
