Residential Recycling Assistance
OROE will help establish or improve apartment building recycling programs, ensuring that they meet city requirements and facilitate proper recycling by tenants. We provide training for building staff and reinforce good recycling habits by conducting workshops for tenants and shareholders. Participants will receive a set of our Sort & Store recycling stations to help maintain recycling in their apartments.
Public Recycling Workshops and Informational Tables
