Multi-family recycling in Calgary

As of Feb. 1, 2016 all multi-family complexes are required to offer on-site recycling for residents.

Multi-family complexes come in many forms such as condos, apartments, townhouses or any other building or development with five or more units on a single parcel of land. That's why flexibility and choice are foundations for multi-family complexes.

Every complex will have to provide on-site recycling of the materials accepted in single family Blue Cart recycling. Each complex can decide how to provide on-site recycling, how and where to store materials, and whether to hire a company or recycle it themselves. For building owners and managers, we offer some multifamily recycling program tips.
