Multi-family going green
Almost one third of the multi-family units in Plano have recycling services, or about fifty complexes.
Six more multi-family complexes get on board with recycling each year.
Each multi-family complex saves several hundred to several thousand dollars per year on waste services by adding a recycling program.
Nine years ago Plano had one apartment complex with recycling and added one condo complex. The progress has been through education and attraction, not by mandates. Multi-family parents want a clean, healthy planet for their children just as much as homeowners. Let's make it convenient for them to recycle.
