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. 

Citizens' Climate Lobby's is a non-profit, non-partisan, grassroots advocacy organization focused on national policies to address climate change.
