The City of Raleigh has worked diligently to develop unique and timely solutions to the solid waste issues facing all local governments. As always, Raleigh Recycling has served as an example to other municipalities across the state.

Multi-Family Service (Apartments/Condos)
The City of Raleigh makes it easy for residents living in apartments, condominiums and townhouses to participate in the Raleigh Recycling program by providing collection centers in convenient locations in multi-family communities. Depending on availability, communities will receive either "igloo*" style recycling containers that measure 54"D x 71"W and stand 48" high, or roll carts. Additionally, complex managers will receive educational materials that can be shared with their residents. Best of all - there are no additional fees for the service!
To join the program, complex managers should call Raleigh Recycling at 919-996-6890 or contact our Waste Reduction Specialist. We will be happy to explain how easily multi-family residents can recycle right in their own complex.
Please note that multi-family communities are responsible for providing their own collection and recycling of corrugated cardboard. This can be accomplished using a private hauler with an onsite cardboard dumpster or maintenance staff may collected it and take it to one of the City's Recycling Drop Off Centers at no charge.
Recycling Block Leaders
We always need more help in encouraging participation in our recycling programs, bringing awareness to the importance of waste reduction, teaching others how to compost at home and staffing tables at festivals and events.
Our Raleigh Recycling Block Leader group is a loose group allowing you to decide your level of time commitment. Once you sign up and join the Recycling Block Leader email distribution list you can to do as little as forward emails to your neighbors and friends, on up to making your neighborhood your own "project" and distributing information and containers we provide.
We'll be happy to assist you!
