Zero Waste DFW: Arlington Public Meeting on Multi-family Recycling - Arlington

Aug 15 2018 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm
Arlington City Hall
101 W Abram St
Arlington , TX

Last week, Arlington City Council voted to approve an ordinance that would require all new apartment complexes to provide recycling. Thanks to public pressure from recycling advocates, city council members also said this was just Phase I and they called for more public input on recycling programs and policies that could apply to all existing apartments.

More than 100,000 Arlington residents live in apartments complexes and most of them do not have access to simple recycling programs for materials like glass, paper, plastics and metals. 

City leaders are finally taking action on this issue. They've also indicated they are open to making other changes to improve recycling services, such as the residential recycling and bulk trash collection programs. 

Join us at City Hall to hear about what the city is doing to improve recycling and show your support for new initiatives!
