High-Rise Residential Recycling

  • In the City of Chicago, recycling is mandatory. Single-family homes and buildings of 4 or less units can recycle through the City of Chicago’s Blue Cart Program. All other buildings are required to have a recycling program through one of the city’s private haulers.
  • Recycling has a positive impact: When you recycle, you divert materials away from the landfill and lower the need to extract raw, natural resources to make new products.
  • The below guide outlines what is accepted in our program for residential buildings. Please note that we offer separate programs for Universal Waste (electronics, batteries, bulbs, and ink/toner cartridges), Compost, and Paper Shredding / Document Destruction.
