Multi-Family (Apts., Condos, Mobile Homes)

If you manage or live in a multi-family dwelling or apartment building in SLO County, it is quick and easy to set up a recycling program. 

Call 805-782-8530 for a FREE recycling assessment and we will guide you through three simple steps: 

1. Exterior bins for recycling, green waste, and food scraps

We will help you obtain an exterior bin for pickup by your waste service collection provider.    

May contain: kiosk, transportation, truck, vehicle, car, and person
May contain: child, female, girl, person, recycling symbol, and symbol

2. Interior bins for recycling and food scraps

Upon request and availability, the IWMA provides free interior recycling and compost containers to businesses and multi-family dwellings committed to recycling and composting.  

3. Notify tenants 

Here is a sample letter to tenants explaining the new program.
