    The City's new Recycling Ordinance mandates that all multi-family residences with nine (9) units or more and all commercial establishments implement a single-stream recycling program. If you have received a letter from the City and wish to verify that your establishment is in compliance, please fill out the Recycling Verification Form.

    If you are not sure what single-stream recycling is, download this free Single-stream Recycling Poster!

    If you have a recycling program, but you are not quite happy with it, fill out the Workshop Requests form and we will send someone to your residence or business to help you make your program more efficient.

    Finally, if you want to let your residents know where your recycling bins are located or where the recycling area is, download and fill out one of these two helpful signs:

    1. Customizable Trash Chute Sign 1
    2. Customizable Trash Chute Sign 2
