Energy Conservation and Recycling
Recycling is one of the most pressing issues of the new decade. The Management Office is eager to ensure that we and our building tenants do our part to help extend the life of current landfill areas. With that in mind, we have established a convenient single stream recycling program in the building.
The building collects and recycles on a daily basis; mixed paper (including colored paper, envelopes, magazines, etc.), cardboard (boxes should be broken down flat), glass (bottles & jars), plastic (bottles & jugs), and metal (cans). Electronic waste, including computer equipment, ink cartridges, all bulbs & ballasts, and batteries are recycled several times annually. Any bulbs and batteries should be given to Building Engineers for proper disposal on an ongoing basis. Janitorial staff remove trash, commingled recyclables (glass, metal, plastics), and mixed paper & cardboard on a nightly basis.
For more information about building recycling or to request a recycling container, please call the Management Office at 703-698-1888.
