MULTI-FAMILY RECYCLING PROGRAMS

Mixed Recycling Calgary

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.

REMINDER: The Organics Recycling Bylaw Takes Effect November 1, 2017

All multi-family buildings must have an organics program in place.
