recycling containerOn April 1, 2019, the city passed changes to its Solid Waste code requiring all commercial and multifamily properties provide the opportunity for recycling. These requirements are to be phased in over the following four years, starting with the largest properties and each year incorporating all others.

The first deadline took effect for all new developments applying for a permit on October 1, 2019. The ordinance requires three basic steps for compliance:

  1. Provide a recycling container
  2. Implement a recycling program
  3. Submit a recycling verification form to the city
