Apartment/Condo Pilot Recycling Program
City of Iowa City

The Iowa City Landfill and Recycling Center has developed an Apartment & Condominium Recycling – Best Practices Manual following a successful pilot recycling program with funding assistance through the Solid Waste Alternatives Program.

The Best Practices Manual provides results of the pilot project as well as outlines steps to take, partners to include, and overcoming perceived barriers when implementing a similar multi-family recycling program in your community.
