How To Set Up a Successful Recycling Program in Multifamily Housing Complexes
Do you manage or own a multifamily housing unit in Lincoln, and are you wondering how you can comply with the new corrugated cardboard diversion ban? (Starting April 1, 2018, the landfill will not accept clean and dry corrugated cardboard.) Come to this discussion to find out how other properties in Lincoln are planning and implementing successful recycling programs, how you can implement your own, and everything you need to know about the new cardboard ban. Panelists include Katie Lyons, Regional Manager, Broadmoor; Jon Carlson, small multifamily complex owner; Ryan Hatten, Paragon Sanitation. A zero-waste lunch including vegetarian and gluten-free options will be provided. To register, contact Kim Morrow at firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to benchmarking energy and water use in Portfolio Manager, you can measure and track waste & materials generated by your building. Upgrade from the cumbersome spreadsheet you have been using, or get started for the first time, and learn how to use the waste tracking feature.
