Maryland Passes Multifamily Recycling Law

Maryland has passed a law requiring recycling for multifamily housing with more than 10 dwellings.

The measure passed by the Maryland General Assembly states that apartment buildings or condominiums with more than 10 units must make recycling available to residents. The measure was introduced in the Maryland House by Delegate Stephen Lafferty and in the Senate by Sen. Paul Pinsky.

The Arlington, Va.-based Aluminum Association endorsed the move, in a news release. “Recycling is the easiest way for everyone to 'go green' in their daily lives, and we applaud those involved in the passage of this law," said Heidi Brock, president of the association. "Access to recycling in multifamily units has been a regular challenge for recycling experts; this law will certainly increase the recycling rate and the long-term sustainability of Maryland."
