Maryland House Considers Bill To Require Recycling

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The Maryland House of Delegates is scheduled to consider a bill that would require management at apartment buildings and condominiums to offer recycling services.

Sponsored by Baltimore County Democrat Stephen Lafferty, the measure is slated for a final vote Friday.

The bill requires a property manager or owner of a building with 10 or more units to collect recyclable waste.

Montgomery and Prince George’s counties already collect recycling from multi-family properties.

According to an analysis of the bill, it is unclear how much it would cost other jurisdictions to implement the program.

A version of the bill has already passed the state Senate.
