W&M Properties collects 'green' award for its recycling program.
W&M Properties has received the GreenCircle Award for resource conservation and environmental awareness from the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection.
Established in 1998, the GreenCircle Program Awards recognize positive contributions made by businesses, institutions, schools, civic organizations and individuals who promote natural resource conservation and environmental awareness.
W&M was honored for its innovative electronics-recycling program, which is in place at four properties in Connecticut and three in New York. Under the program, building managers were trained in proper electronics recycling, and site recycling procedures were developed for each building. W&M also provided tenants with information on the environmental requirements for recycling their used electronic devices.
Since the program's inception, W&M has collected and recycled over 12,000 pounds of mixed electronics from building tenants.
"We are committed to providing our tenants with a real solution for managing disposal of obsolete electronics, as well as other environmentally hazardous items," comments Gerrit T. Blauvelt, director of property management at W&M. "This electronics recycling program is an extension of our Universal Waste recycling program for fluorescent lamps and batteries."
