Resources to Encourage Participation

It is important that your residents and employees are given the most up-to-date information about recycling.  Be sure to promote your recycling program: at move-in or hire; when any changes are made to the program; and/or on an annual basis.

Program Posters and Templates**

Tailor these posters to hang around your property in common areas to promote recycling.  You could also print them at letter size to include in a move-in packet.

The U.S. EPA has conducted a number of studies to determine what makes a successful multi-family recycling program, both at the community and building level. "Multi-Family Recycling: A Golden Opportunity for Solid Waste Reduction" is an in-depth look at the rationale for multi-family recycling and also is a mini-implementation guide. It is a great primer for Boards and HOAs just learning about recycling. Download or read the PDF by clicking on the link above. The EPA's 2001 study "Multi-Family Recycling: A National Study" also includes a good overview of factors that make multi-family programs successful. Detailed implementation advice and lists of additional resources are included in "Complex Recycling
Issues: Strategies for Record-Setting Waste Reduction in MultiFamily Dwellings."
