WSRA Multifamily Recycling Study
The WSRA's Washington State Multifamily Study Group (WAMRS) was formed in 2012 to characterize existing multifamily recycling service in Washington State and to identify best management practices for successful multifamily recycling programs.
In 2012-13, WAMRS conducted a statewide survey of multifamily property managers and management firms to understand perceptions of and barriers to multifamily recycling from the perspective of building management. In addition, recycling coordinators from across the state completed a survey about agency recycling programs, and a group of industry professionals conducted research into national and international multifamily recycling programs.
Property Manager Survey
Funding for the statewide survey of multifamily property managers project was generously provided by a $60,000 grant from the Washington State Department of Ecology and match funds from six WSRA-member agencies, including Spokane Regional Solid Waste System, City of Tacoma, City of Seattle, Clark County, King County Housing Authority and Kitsap County.
