Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Question:
Hello,

I live in the City of Los Angeles. How do I find out if the owner of my 6 unit apartment building pays the recycling fee? We do not have any recycling bins and my neighbors in the building say it is because the landlord doesn't want to pay for it. But from reading your website it sounds like it is automatically in the waste hauler bill that he already pays. If he is already paying the recycling fee, then we would like to get recycle bins. All of the buildings next to us recycle with the city's pick up service.

Thanks for your help.
Meredith
