City Hall, has reduced the amount of trash from offices by upsizing the recycle bin and downsizing the trash can. The result has been increased education on what can be recycled from desks and a significant reduction in trash accumulation in offices.
Employee coffee stations include a compost bin. Actual flatware and cups are used instead of disposable, and individual bags for coffee are composted instead of placed in the trash.
At the end of every evening, staff turn off monitors and lights before leaving. Staff also purchase duplex copies and printers when replacing old ones, and all toner cartridges are recycled through a centralized program at City Hall.
Employee events have zero waste, with 85 percent or greater being recycled or composted.
