Multifamily Recycling 

Multifamily Recycling

Multifamily recycling is an on-site recycling collection system for residents that occupy multifamily dwellings. Multifamily dwellings include sprawling apartment complexes, high rise buildings, townhomes, and condos. Recycling in multifamily dwellings has challenges, but increasingly, it is an amenity that residents and tenants expect and demand.


Fortunately, recycling is easier with improved processing techniques and the simple single stream collection method where all recyclable materials can be commingled into the same container. To discover what can and cannot be recycled in Saint Louis County, please see What Can I Recycle Curbside?
