Sorting Recycling, Organics & Garbage
Properly sorting your waste into the right bins (i.e. Blue Bin recycling, Green Bin organics, garbage) can save money, reduce the amount of material going to landfill and benefit the environment.
Property owners of multi-residential buildings pay a fee based on how much garbage the building generates during the billing period and the number of units in the building. There is no fee for Blue Bin recycling and Green Bin organics collection. Buildings that reduce garbage by diverting more waste through the Blue Bin recycling and Green Bin organics programs will reduce their Solid Waste fees.
