Smart Trash Planning

Improve the profitability and safety of multifamily facilities with a well-designed trash and recycling area.

Waste disposal isn’t always top of mind when designing multifamily facilities, but properly configuring disposal and recycling areas and investing in the right compactor can cut costs and increase rental revenue, while also being a real draw for residents.

Today’s renters, particularly millennials, prioritize sustainability, which means that communities that offer a recycling program can often charge roughly $500 more in rent per unit over those that do not. Moreover, while recycling rates have increased in recent years, recycling is still a better deal than sending trash to the local landfill.
