Recycling & Composting Toolkit for Property Managers

Schedule a free on-site recycling consultation

Increase participation in your building's recycling and composting program with a free on-site consultation.

  • Reduce what you and your building's tenants send to landfill.
  • Save money on your refuse bill from Recology. 

Communicate the law to your tenants.


Set up your zero waste collection area. 

Still need support?

  • Schedule a community presentation or ask us to schedule door to door outreach to your tenants. Contact SF Environment at 415-355-3700 or via this online form to request your free consultation.
  • Does your property have a contamination charge on your bill? Or do you have a general lack of participation in your building?
  • Consider hiring a third party - Zero Waste Facilitators (Recycling Sorters)
