CPCC Recycling Updates

 

GCA Services is committed to increasing CPCC’s recycling and waste diversion rate. They recently held a recycling poster contest for their housekeeping staff and distributed personally written recycling messages to building Dual waste-recycle basketsoccupants where their staff works.  Continue to watch for more great things from GCA housekeeping staff in the future.

Some facts about CPCC’s COLOR – CODED  RECYCLING:

  • GCA housekeeping staff uses color-coded collection bags to separate trash from recycling.
  • Recycling baskets usually do not have liners because they are not recyclable.
