Helping apartment dwellers recycle

September 3, 2011 |  6:02 am

Recycle2Assemblyman Bob Blumenfield (D-Woodland Hills) has sponsored a bill requiring owners of buildings with five or more units to provide recycling services.

He recently joined with representatives of organizations supporting the bill in a news conference at the Bella Vista Apartments in Woodland Hills -- which Blumenfield said “demonstrated it can be done and done efficiently” -- to urge Gov. Jerry Brown to sign the legislation. Former Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed an earlier version of the bill.

The Times' Mary MacVean has more details on the bill at the Home blog.
