Multi-Unit Residential Property Owners and Managers

How can we help you start or improve recycling opportunities at your apartment building?

The All In Recycling Program is conducting a short survey about recycling opportunities available to residents in multi-unit properties. This online survey asks a few questions about recycling services at your property and requests current contact information. This information will allow us to provide up-to-date resources and support to help you and your residents recycle at your property.

Please fill out one survey for each property you own or manage.
