Downtown Green Source, a program of Central Atlanta Progress and the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, recently joined efforts with the Downtown office community for a successful collection drive that generated 7.563 tons of recycled office supplies.

Downtown Green Source partnered with LiveThriveAtlanta, Recycling Management Resources, and Five Star Shredding to host a “Clean Out Your Office” recycling drive. Seven property management offered 12 locations in nine buildings for the drive. Partnering property management companies include Parkway Realty Services, Boxer Property, Cousins Properties Incorporated, Fairlead Commercial Real Estate, Jones Lang LaSalle, RB Management Services and Lincoln Property Company.

RB Management employees bring documents to shred.

“We had so much participation from our 260|270 Peachtree Tenants. Some offices held internal competitions, cleaned out storage areas, and truly took advantage of the on-site shredding truck services,” said Leslie Pigue, Marketing Director with RB Management Services, Inc. at 260|270 Peachtree.

The nine participating Downtown office buildings included Peachtree Center, The Hurt Building, One Ninety One Peachtree Tower, American Cancer Society Center, M. Rich Building, Woodruff Volunteer Center, The Loudermilk Center, 260|270 Peachtree and 55 Allen Plaza.

Recycling Management Resources placed bins at various locations throughout the office buildings for the collection of non-secure office supplies. Five Star Shredding was on-site for the recycling of secure documents.

“We’re pleased with the impressive results of the Downtown recycling drive,” said A.J. Robinson, President of Central Atlanta Progress. “The Downtown community has proven once again that it can accomplish a great deal through collaboration, and we are grateful to our project partners, property management companies and Downtown property owners for their commitment to sustainability.”
