Calgary approves multi-family recycling bylaw

As of Feb. 1, 2016, Calgary multi-family building residents will have access to more robust on-site recycling services under the region’s new council-approved Waste & Recycling Bylaw. Apartments, condominiums, townhouses and other multi-family complexes will be required to accept paper and cardboard, food cans, glass jars, plastic containers and bags. The City of Calgary will not collect multi-family recycling, but builder owners and managers will be tasked with determining which private company best serves the needs of their building.
