To maximize access to recycling, the City offers mixed recycling services at no additional cost to trash services. Apartment Complexes may reduce their trash service costs by diverting recyclables out of the trash and into a No-Additional-Cost recycling bin. Save $GREEN$ and be GREEN by recycling!
Property Managers if your complex has 5 or more units, state law requires you to have a recycling program. Call Waste Management at (866)844-1508 to set up your No-Additional-Cost recycling service or visit them online at SacramentoValley.WM.com.
Residents if your apartment complex does not currently offer recycling services, please let your complex manager know you would like to recycle. There is no additional cost to the complex to add mixed recycling services. So, waste service costs may actually be reduced by adding recycling service.
The City is here to help residents living in apartment complexes recycle right. We offer educational information on what can be recycled in your mixed recycling container and a recycling tote bags to carry your recyclables to the recycling bin. Call (916) 617-4590 for more information.
