When moving to your first home or apartment, there are a lot of good finds around thrift and reuse stores when looking for furniture or other home items. The majority of my apartment furniture is reused, whether from Goodwill stores or friends in the area. They are all very good quality pieces and have a great style too, while being much easier on my budget! Definitely recommended to those in need of things for the home.
Our apartment complex has recycling bins in community mail areas, encouraging recycling directly at the source, where there is a high potential for mass paper waste. This has been an easy way to help residents responsibly dispose of unneeded letters and other mail that may otherwise be thrown away with regular trash.
My apartment building offers a composting option in addition to the general waste and recycling bins.
