    Apartment buildings of 10 units or more could be required to collect recycling.

    The Maryland House of Delegates is scheduled to consider a bill that would require management at apartment buildings and condominiums 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.
