The purpose of the Multifamily Recycling Project was to define what opportunities for improvement exist in multifamily garbage and recycling collection related to policy, infrastructure and education. Project goals included:
- ensuring access across the region to recycling services for people living in multifamily households,
- increasing the amount of materials recycled by multifamily households,
- ensuring the recyclable materials collected are high quality, and therefore have value in recycling markets.
Data collected in this project included a sampling of the levels of service provided, a study of what goes is currently placed in garbage and recycling bins, interviews with local governments, and interviews with residents.
