Buckhead Recycle’s Model
The model involves establishing our program partner, Recycling Management Resources (RMR), as the contracted waste services provider for each participating building. RMR is a local recycler, which means they have a financial incentive to recover as much clean recycled material as possible. We work closely with RMR, as well as each building’s janitorial and engineering staffs, to ensure that each building receives the most effective and reliable waste services available in the Atlanta office market.
We propose and implement system enhancements that improve the back-of-house recycling practices at each building, and ultimately we track tonnage data from each building in order to measure and report on their performance and progress.
Livable Buckhead further supports each building by educating their workforce about proper recycling behavior and the importance of recycling. We provide branded educational materials for in-office promotion of the critical guidelines for proper recycling, and other tools to ensure that everyone is participating in the pursuit of the best recycling program possible. Consistent messaging throughout the community also serves to reduce the confusion that is so common when it comes to office recycling.
