  • How Recycled Bags Go From Trash to Treasure

    Single-use plastic bags serve their purpose in the short term, providing a quick and easy way to transport items from one place to the next. But, what happens next?

Although multi-family residents' attitudes about recycling are in line with those who live in single-family dwellings, in 2001 (the last time a multifamily recycling study was done), the EPA reported the recycling rate was only 14.6 percent.
