Western Waste will begin collecting recyclables at apartments in Sierra Madre in July, the City Council voted Tuesday.
The program will cost property owners or their tenants $1.50 per month per unit. Tenants of apartments or condominium complexes with eight or fewer units will each receive a 14-gallon orange recycling container, as do single-family homes.
Recycling stations will be established at complexes with nine or more units. Western Waste will provide them with two 95-gallon wheeled containers, one for newspapers, and the other for aluminum and plastics.
Recyclables will be picked up once a week, on the same day as normal trash service.
