Most apartment communities are not designed with recycling in mind. All too often, recyclable material is left unsorted due to physical constraints of the property. The two most common materials in the trash that can be recycled are paper and plastics.  We do a relatively good job with paper, as about 63% of all paper products are recycled.  Unfortunately, of the 31 million tons of plastic manufactured in 2010, the estimated amount that was recycled was only 8%!

The solution is to minimize the amount of waste sent to landfills while increasing the amount of recycling and reuse of that material.  By reducing the amount of waste with recycling, we can reduce our impact and minimize your community’s trash footprint.

How it Works

  • You will be provided with blue ties to identify recyclable materials.
  • Please place all recyclable materials in a trash or paper bag and tie it closed with the provided blue ties.
  • Place the bag outside of your door during the designated time.
  • IW representatives will walk the entire apartment community collecting the bags from each doorstep.
  • IW representatives will deliver all recyclables to the appropriate bins on the property.

We strive for perfection, but if you have a missed pick-up, or place it outside later than the designated time, please call us immediately (not the property manager).
