Multi-Family Property Manager Recycling Practices Survey

Apartment Block

Full Circle Environmental was gratified, as always, to partner with the highly-regarded Elway Research on the first statewide survey to explore recycling at multi-family properties. The objective was to learn from multi-family property managers about:

  • Current recycling and composting practices
  • Barriers and motivations to improve recycling

A total of 530 property managers completed the questionnaire and provided invaluable input.

We put together the survey—as well as the strategic executive interviews that informed the full survey—with an actively-involved and dedicated client team: The Washington State Recycling Association and its subcommittee, Washington Multifamily Recycling Study Group (WAMRS), with funding from the Washington State Department of Ecology, Kitsap County Public Works, King County Housing Authority, Seattle Public Utilities, Spokane Regional Solid Waste System, City of Tacoma Solid Waste Management, and Clark County.
