Multifamily Community Resources

State law (ORS 90.318) requires property owners of apartments, condominiums and other multifamily communities (with 5 or more units) to provide recycling service along with garbage in the following cities and urban growth boundary areas: Creswell, Eugene, Florence and Springfield.

Clear instructions and signage are effective first steps in promoting recycling and reducing contamination in multifamily communities.

Lane County is conducting a multifamily property pilot project. The pilot is seeking to improve multifamily recycling systems by distributing resources and tools to improve the quantity and quality of recyclables collected from multi-tenant locations.
Check out the tenant education resources we have to offer below.  Request and distribute how-to flyers and/or recycle guides, post reminders and be sure the bins are labeled and instructions are visible and understandable.

Multifamily Instruction Signs and Decals

Instructional signs can be used as flyers, posters or added to tenant newsletters. Request adhesive backed decals, images and content to add to tenant newsletters.

Please note: Decals can only be affixed to collection containers owned by you. Please contact your garbage and recycling company regarding placement of signage on their containers. 

Depending on where you live in Lane County, recycling instructions can vary. Check with your garbage and recycling company if you have questions.

Tenant Education & Resources

The Guide for Property Managers and Owners provides tips, strategies and resources on ways to improve recycling and disposal at multifamily properties.

The On Site Recycling Guide will ensure tenants are aware and commit to onsite recycling programs.

The Tenant Reminder Packet offers printable posters or content for newsletters and/or social media.

The Moving Guide will help tenants make a plan for things they no longer need and provide disposal options for hard-to-recycle items.
