Design Guidelines for Trash and Recycling

The Space Allocation and Enclosure Design Guidelines for Trash and Recycling (DGTR) provide recycling and waste collection requirements for all developments in the city. Integrated collection areas with recycling components assist in the reduction of waste materials, thereby prolonging the life of landfills and promoting environmentally-sound practices and help the city meet State-mandated recycling requirements.

The guidelines are also available in an automatic spreadsheet calculator which allows the applicant to input business type and number of anticipated employees to generate a recommended service level for garbage, recycling, and organics collection.
