Multi-family Waste Reduction Toolkit

 Click to see accessible text version of info graphic - The Goal is to have more recycling at all properties. Residential recycling rate is 68%, multi-family is 18%, commercial is 24%. Multi-family goal by 2015 is 20%. How can we work together to achieve this goal? We will provide the tools to help you.

Apartments and condos in Kirkland only recycle 18% of their waste, as of 2014. Kirkland’s 2015 goal is getting condos and apartments up to 20% recycling. King County  is trying to reach an overall 70% recycling rate (including food waste) by 2020. You can help us get there!

Read success stories of how we've helped apartments use the toolkit to reduce their garbage bills by hundreds and even thousands of dollars!
