CALGARY MULTI-FAMILY RECYCLING BYLAW

This includes condominium buildings, apartments, townhouses, and any other residential building with five or more units. Each building can decide how they want to provide on-site recycling. The City of Calgary has some information available for building owners, property managers, condominium boards, and building residents on their Multi-Family Recycling Page.

MULTI-FAMILY RECYCLING PROGRAMS
We work with condominium boards and property managers to make sure that your building has an efficient recycling program that is fully compliant with the city bylaws. This includes determining where bins will be placed, what type of bins will be used, how many are required, and the frequency of pick-ups. We will also help make sure that residents are aware of the program and know what they CAN and CANNOT put into the bins. We offer both blue bin totes and 3 or 4 yard bins.
