The City of Houston and The Houston Apartment Association Launch New "Go Green Community" Recycling Initiative
to Increase Recycling in Apartment Communities

The Houston Apartment Association (HAA) and the City of Houston Solid Waste Management Department (SWMD) launched on November 15, 2011 the Go Green Community initiative to increase recycling in apartment communities. The City of Houston also proclaimed Nov. 15 as Houston Recycles Day, which coincides with Texas Recycles Day and America Recycles Day.

With approximately 2,000 apartment communities in  the Houston city limits, HAA and SWMD hope to see 50 percent of those properties establish recycling programs by 2013. Many apartment communities already have adopted recycling programs and the Go Green Community initiative will recognize those efforts. Participating communities will be listed on the City of Houston and Houston Apartment Association web pages as Go Green Communities. They also will be eligible for a Go Green Community certificate to let their residents and others know of their efforts to create a cleaner, greener Houston.

Houston Apartment Association as Go Green Communities.
