We recycle tenant waste and construction debris throughout our entire portfolio. Our goal is to increase recycling diversion rates and the types of materials recycled, both in daily waste and in renovation and new construction. Our team provides tenant education programs to ensure waste is diverted from landfills at every step, from the individual employee, to the bins on tenants’ floors, to the cleaning team, to the waste hauler and customized recycling, reuse and donation programs. We continue to identify opportunities to track and report waste at each property and work closely with property management teams and our partners to ensure all waste is being collected and diverted in accordance with ESRT’s guidelines.
