Reusable Recycling Bags Are A Game-Changer for Multi-Family Recycling

Reusable recycling bags are exactly what they sound like; reusable bags used to collect items for recycling. Recycling rates in multi-family units like apartments, dorms, and condos are typically low for a variety of reasons. While saving money and helping the planet in the process, these simple bags address the problems inherent to many apartment building recycling programs.

Studies have shown recycling rates increase up to 77 percent in three years after implementing reusable recycling bags. Learn more about what reusable recycling bags are, how they work and why you should begin with the bag.

Easy Solution

Reusable recycling bags work in just about any type of home that does not have an effective curbside recycling program in place. Apartments, condos, dorms and other types of multi-home dwellings can all benefit from reusable recycling bags. These bags take the place of bulky bins common to curbside recycling programs.

Saves Space

The compact size of these reusable recycling bags takes up less space than bulky bins. The large plastic bins are necessary for curbside recycling programs, but they are just too big for use in multi-family units like apartments. Reusable recycling bags make it easy to round up and collect recyclables without taking up a bunch of space and getting in the way.

The dual handles make it easy to hang these bags from a doorknob, hook, coat rack or anyplace nearby, so they are always handy. When not in use the bags can be folded flat and take up barely any space.
