TradeCenter 128 Recycling
TradeCenter 128 is a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) pre-certified Gold building. In making a commitment to a cleaner, more energy-efficient environment, Cummings Properties is mandated by both state statute and LEED requirements to maintain a recycling program in the building. We hope your organization will embrace the green nature of this effort and participate fully in this important program.

Cummings Properties is responsible for maintaining most clients' cleaning programs including paper recycling and waste removal. We have instructed your cleaner to collect pre-selected waste components and transport them to the appropriate building receptacles. Accordingly, trash and recylcing materials must be deposited into the appropriate containers.

Paper Recycling
Paper products, generated in quantity by most office users, make up the large bulk of all recyclable materials. Clients are expected to recycle a wide variety of paper materials including;

  • Catalogs
  • Coated, glossy and colored paper
  • Envelopes (including windows)
  • File folders
  • Junk mail
  • Magazines
  • Newspapers
  • Paperboard
  • Post-It Notes
  • Shredded stationary and white paper

The only requirement is that the paper material be separated from trash waste. The best way to effect this is by maintaining separate recycling bins at the points of generation.

Cummings Properties is offering seven-gallon, blue deskside recycle containers for clients at the below cost rate of only $2 each. To purchase, please contact your leasing/property manager.

Cardboard/Bulk Paper Recycling
Sometimes your firm will generate various paper and cardboard waste that will not fit in deskside recycling containers, especially upon move-in. In this case, your firm should make arrangements to bring these items to the cardboard dumspter located just outside the southwest corner of the parking garage.

Other Recyclables (Glass, Plastic and Metal)
Clients may also bring all plastic labeled 1-7, tin beverage containers, metal, aluminum and glass beverage containers to the designated "recycling room" conveniently located in the southwest corner of the first level of the parking garage (closest to Dana's Café). This room is always open. Please rinse all materials thoroughly before depositing in the designated containers and take special care when transporting your bagged recyclables through the building to avoid staining or damaging flooring.

Thank you for your participation in this important program. Happy recycling!
