Waste Removal/Recycling & Composting Program at Starrett-Lehigh

A recent facility management meeting at Starrett-Lehigh was help to review the new NYC Department of Sanitation (DOS) guidelines.

In order to educate tenants, Starrett-Lehigh’s Property Management team complied a panel of speakers from DOS, the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, Starrett-Lehigh’s carting vendor, and the building’s composting partner. The group discussed DOS regulations, providing building tenants with information about composting and recycling programs.

“We would like to thank every single Starrett-Lehigh tenant for participating in Recycling Programs. We are happy to tell you that our building is recognized by our neighbors and serves as an example for our entire community [for recycling and composting]. We recently won Operating Building of the Year award largely in part to your collaboration, help, and support.” – Mitchell Grant, RXR Realty Operations Manager at Starrett-Lehigh

The new recycling laws go into effect this August. These rules are being implemented as a result of the city’s goal for zero waste.
