Waterloo will ‘relaunch’ their multi-res program. The project will implement best practices (update database, site visits, performance monitoring, new p&e, increase number of carts). Will distribute in-unit containers to all multi-res households.
In this Region of Waterloo project, the following best practices were implemented: conducting site visits to assess recycling performance (benchmarking); providing adequate bin capacity; identifying the overall program recycling rate, and distributing new promotion and education materials. The municipality distributed almost 1000 carts, increasing average MR capacity by 4 litres/household; recycling increased by 6%. This report lists numerous operational, administrative, and educational multi-residential recycling recommendations.
