Our goal is to divert 95% of our landfill waste to recycling and/or compost by the end of 2017. A higher diversion rate is great for the environment and it lowers our refuse bill - a savings that’s ultimately passed back to you. 100 First Street is currently at an 80% diversion rate, so we’ll need everyone’s participation to boost that up to 95%!
Recycling Durable Goods
Kilroy Realty facilitates the reduction of waste and toxins generated from the use of durable goods by building occupants through its recycling program. The term “durable goods” refers to higher-cost-per-unit materials that are replaced infrequently and/or may require capital outlays to purchase. These products may include, but are not limited to: office equipment (such as computers, monitors, printers, copiers, fax machines), appliances (refrigerators, dishwashers, water coolers), external power adaptors and televisions.
Electronic wastes are filled with heavy metals that are environmentally damaging to extract and pollute air and water when disposed of in incinerators or landfills. The Building Management team targets at least two e-waste collection events per year. We ensure that our e-waste providers are processing our electronic waste domestically and not shipping it abroad, a common practice that causes significant environmental and health problems.
To find out the date of the building's next e-waste event, please contact the Building Management Office.
