Why Build A Culture of Recycling in your High Rise Building?

  • Avoid fines and save money on labor and other costs needed
    to correct resident recycling errors. Maintain a trash chute.

  • Maintain a cleaner building. Reduce the risk of infestation inside
    and outside building.

  • Stand out in the market: A strong recycling program creates an opportunity to market sustainability elements to potential residents.

  • Prepare for the future: Expect legislation mandating organics collection with greater enforcement. Establish channels to address broader building/city sustainability goals.

  • Strengthen internal community among residents.

  • Conserve energy and valuable resources. Help reduce climate pollution
