Multiple-Family Building Guidelines
The City of Richmond requires all multi-family residential and mixed-use buildings to have adequate storage for garbage and recycling. Recycling and waste management is an integral part of the development and planning process for multi-family buildings.
This page is intended to assist designers and developers of multi-family buildings with:
- Develop building design to support convenient access to full range of recycling and garbage services,
- Develop building design to ensure sufficient space is allocated for collection of materials,
- Create efficient centralized collection areas with sufficient space for recycling and garbage containers or other materials that are generated to help avoid unsightly premises,
- Minimize contamination of recycling by designing areas to accommodate convenient grouping of recycling types and space for instructional materials.
