why did we pilot a multifamily collection
Why Did We Pilot A Multifamily Collection?
  • LHWMP conducted a study in 2006 to assess its Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection services
  • Among the outcomes was explore ways to increase use of Program HHW collection services by multifamily residents
what do we know about multifamily hhw
What Do We Know About Multifamily HHW?
  • Residents living in multifamily dwellings use the HHW collection services far less than would be expected based on demographic and housing.
is there a need for multifamily collection

Not sure but we decided to implement a multifamily pilot collection to see if there is a need for expanded efforts

Assumption that having multifamily collections would help under served communities

what does it all mean
What Does It All Mean?
  • May confirm assumption that HHW is generated by single family homes
  • Multifamily residents don’t have very much HHW

Smaller foot prints

Limited storage

No yards

  • Many multifamily units provide only garbage receptacles leading to disposing of HHW as garbage
  • Limited information available to residents on what is hazardous and how to properly dispose
