Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) NRS 444A.020
Description of Petition: This regulation addresses revisions to standards for municipal recycling at apartment complexes and condominiums as required by SB417: Under existing law (NRS 444A.010 to 444A.050), Nevada counties are required to provide for recycling services. The level of service required is dependent on the population of the county.
Counties with populations of 100,000 or more must provide for curbside collection of recyclables. Counties with populations of 45,000 to 100,000 must provide for recycling centers where recyclable material may be dropped off, and counties with populations of less than 45,000 may provide services if they choose to, but are not required to do so. Services provided by counties must conform to minimum standards established in regulation by the State Environmental Commission.
To implement SB417, the Division is proposing minor amendments to existing regulations to require that recycling services be made available to apartment complexes and condominiums, however, the regulation does not mandate that apartment complexes and condominiums, or Multi-Family Dwellings (MFDs), participate in recycling programs. Following the structure in the existing statute, new regulatory provisions relating to recycling services at apartment complexes and condominiums will only apply in counties with populations of 100,000 or more. Accordingly, these regulations are designed to provide additional opportunity for residents of apartment complexes and condominium complexes to recycle.
