Recycling in Your Suite

General Information

Materials from suites are collected in two streams:  recyclable material (papers, bottles and cans) and non-recyclable materials (trash). The Property Management Office provides individual cardboard desk side containers for the collection of all paper related materials. These containers should be emptied into a single location in your office space for pickup by the janitorial staff.

Paper Recycling

Paper recycling containers should be kept in a centrally located area (such as a copy room or at the ends of corridors) for all employees to deposit their paper into the same container.   Containers should be marked to indicate paper recycling.  Shredded material may be transferred to the common paper container. 

Aluminum Cans and Glass Bottles

Can and bottle recycling containers should be kept in a centrally located area (such as a break room) for all employees to deposit their cans and bottles into the same container.  Containers should be marked to indicate can and bottle recycling.  Can and bottle containers will be emptied by the janitorial staff.

Cardboard

Cardboard boxes should be completely broken down flat by tenants and placed by the paper recycling container in your suite.  If you have a lot of boxes, it is helpful to call the Property Management Office for pick up at 415.421.1444.  There is no charge to pick up cardboard that is completely broken down, if it does not exceed the normal daily amount generated by a typical office use.
