If your property manager provides you with garbage service, they are required to provide you with recycling service.
If you manage your business's garbage service, your garbage and recycling company must provide you with recycling service.
If the City of Portland receives a complaint that your business is not recycling, we will investigate. If your business is found out of compliance, it must come into compliance within 30 days.
If compliance is not achieved within 30 days, your business will be fined. Fines are $200 per month for the first infraction. Subsequent infractions will increase by $200 each month, i.e., second infraction will be $400, third infraction will be $600, continuing until your business comes into compliance.
